A decade ago, WNYC’s news team spent days, months, and then years reporting on the World Trade Center attacks and their aftermath.
What has happened to the people most affected by 9/11? Host/reporter Marianne McCune answers that question by revisiting the archival recordings of ten years ago, and following up with people who WNYC reporters met back then.
Living 9/11 won a Best Documentary: Honorable Mention Award in the 2012 Third Coast/Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition. The story was produced by Marianne McCune and Emily Botein, and edited by Karen Frillman with executive producer Chris Bannon, for WNYC Radio and PRX, the Public Radio Exchange.
