This is the Radio Boston rundown for September 10, 2021. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Today we bring you a special hour remembering the September 11th terrorist attacks. First, we chart through personal memories and reflections with Mitch Zuckoff, a Boston University professor who wrote the first lead story on 9/11 for The Boston Globe. He is also the author of the book "Fall and Rise: The Story of 9/11."
  • Then, we hear from Katie Murphy, head of the Massachusetts Nurses Association. Her brother Charlie worked in the World Trade Center and died on 9/11. We also check in with Adil Najam, Dean of Boston University's Pardee School of Global Studies. He gave commentary on WBUR in the weeks following September 11th.
  • We end our show with your stories. Earlier this summer, we asked you to submit your memories of 9/11. Today we hear one of them, and we bring you another one on Monday. Today, we hear from Roxanna Myhrum, who was a starting her first day as a student at Harvard University on the day of the 9/11 attacks. She recalls how quickly her new school year changed.
