Friday, September 09, 2011

On the morning of September 11, 2001, WNYC was broadcasting from studios then located in the Municipal Building in lower Manhattan.

Shortly after the first plane hit the North Tower of the World Trade Center that morning, WNYC’s FM transmitter, which was located atop the World Trade Center, was destroyed and WNYC FM went off the air. But WNYC continued to broadcast on its AM signal throughout the day.  

The audio above is a recording of what WNYC broadcast throughout the day on September 11, 2001, beginning shortly after the first plane struck the World Trade Center. It includes the first eyewitness account of the attacks recorded and broadcast that day.
