    Radio Rookies: The 9/11 Generation Speaks

    Radio Rookies partnered with the 9/11 Memorial and Museum to mark the 10th anniversary of September 11 by sharing the stories of six young people from New York City, New Jersey and Long Island who are part of the last generation of young people who remember 9/11 as a lived experience, rather than a historic event. Their stories give voice to grief, pain, and loss, but also resilience, altruism and courage.

    Living 9/11

    Fear and shock, grief and guilt, anger, gratitude and solidarity - these emotions overwhelmed many New Yorkers along with the billowing cloud of smoke and debris after the Towers collapsed. WNYC’s news team spent days, months, and then years reporting on the attacks and their aftermath. Through a mix of their recordings at the time and interviews with people ten years later, WNYC guides listeners through the stories of people who were directly impacted by what happened and have been struggling for a decade to make sense of it.

A classy, careful, and very touching tribute.

It will give you chills hearing the stories of that day and the moments after...but this has been presented with such elegance and class. And for that I thank you.
