A routine day of reporting turns upside down when terrorists
attack the U.S. with commercial airliners. Mike takes us inside his
9/11 experience, trying to reach the burning World Trade Center for
WCBS, but getting nowhere fast.
With more than 50 years of reporting experience between them, veteran broadcast journalists David Mendel and Mike Xirinachs reveal the stories behind the stories. They have shared what was involved in covering major breaking news, including the downing of TWA Flight 800, the first Persian Gulf War, the 9/11 World Trade Center attack, a Ku Klux Klan rally, a city hall hostage standoff and other headline-making events. But they also cut through the clutter to help make sense of today’s news, ranging from the coronavirus pandemic and U.S. Capitol insurrection to a nation grappling with police brutality, racism, voting rights and other hot-button issues. Along the way, David and Mike welcome special guests that are making a difference in the world in their own unique ways. And don't miss the one-minute daily "Time Rewind" history/pop culture feature!
