NYC Stations Cover 9/11 Museum Dedication

President Barack Obama, survivors and victims’ families gathered this morning at the site of the 9/11 attacks for the dedication of the National September 11 Museum. With the exception of Fox-owned WNYW, stations in New York City provided special coverage of the dedication ceremony, which began shortly after 10 a.m.

Bill Ritter and Lori Stokes anchored on WABC, with Lisa Colagrossi reporting from Lower Manhattan for the ABC-owned station. On CBS-owned WCBS, Mary Calvi and Chris Wragge anchored with Lou Young reporting from the museum. Michael Gargiulo and Darlene Rodriguez anchored on NBC-owned WNBC, with David Ushery reporting from the World Trade Center. On CW affiliate WPIX, Kori Chambers anchored from the studio with Sukanya Krishnan and James Ford live from Lower Manhattan.

Obama, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and former New York Mayors Michael Bloomberg and Rudy Giuliani all spoke at the ceremony, which lasted about an hour. “It is an honor for us to join in your memories, to recall and reflect but above all to reaffirm the true spirit of 9/11 — love, compassion, sacrifice — and to enshrine it in the heart of our nation forever,” Obama said.
