As you may know, on September 11th, NBC programming will be mostly dedicated to an observance of the first anniversary of the terrorist attacks, so we would like to let you know what those changes will be and tell you about NewsChannel 11's special coverage that day.
On September 11th, NewsChannel 11 will not be airing Daybreak with Sharon and Steve. Instead, the Today Show will run from 6:00 a.m. until Noon. NewsChannel 11 at Noon will also be pre-empted.
NBC Anchorman Tom Brokaw will host a town meeting from Noon until 3:00 p.m. on that day. At 3:00, programming returns to normal with Oprah, followed by Inside Edition and Jeopardy.
At 5:00, we will bring you a special edition of NewsChannel 11 at Five, anchored by Abner Euresti and Karin McCay. At that time, we will bring you all your local news of the day, including events related to the anniversary of September 11th.
Then, at 5:30, NBC will air an hour long edition of the Nightly News with Tom Brokaw. Because of that, NewsChannel 11 at Six will be pre-empted.
At 6:30, the President's Team Remembers. You will hear the events of 9-11 through the eyes of the men and women closest to the president.
Primetime begins with a special Dateline NBC. Tom Brokaw will interview the air traffic controllers from New York, Washington, Boston, and Cleveland who directed the planes on September 11th.
That's followed by a Concert for America. Performances by the National Symphony Orchestra, Placido Domingo, and many others will honor the victims and heroes of September 11th.
The coverage wraps up with NewsChannel 11 at Ten. Like we did last year on September 11th and the days following, NewsChannel 11 will bring you uninterrupted coverage of all your local news. We will have live reports from across the city, showing you how the people of Lubbock observed 9-11.
