Subscription streaming platform Fox Nation is set to launch several new programs to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York’s Twin Towers, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and downing of a commercial aircraft in rural Pennsylvania that killed more than 3,000 people.
On Friday, Sept. 10, and continuing through Saturday, Sept. 11, network personalities and correspondents will be live from various locations in New York City and Washington, D.C. Throughout the week leading up to the monumental anniversary, Fox News Channel will present themed packages and guest interviews to honor those who lost their lives.
In addition to streaming the one-hour Fox News Channel special “Lost Calls of 9/11,” Fox Nation will feature “I Can Hear You: President Bush at Ground Zero,” hosted by Martha MacCallum Sept. 10. The program focuses on Bush’s visit to Ground Zero days after the terrorist attacks. Bush, who had held office for less than eight months prior to the attacks, visited New York City and stood atop Ground Zero’s rubble, delivering an impromptu speech that would comfort and help unite America.
Additionally, “Countdown Bin Laden,” presented by “Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace will be available Sept. 12. The program tells the story of Aug. 27, 2010, when three CIA officers met with director Leon Panetta about a courier with deep Al Qaeda ties, and a connection to a mysterious three-story compound at the end of a dead-end street in Abbottabad, Pakistan. The compound housed Al–Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, and Wallace takes viewers through the 247-day countdown from that meeting until Bin Laden is killed. An encore presentation will air on FNC later that night at 10 p.m. ET.
