Chris May To Anchor Live From Ground Zero As CBS 3/CW Philly Bring ‘Star Spangled Summer’ To A Close With Expanded 9/11 Anniversary Coverage ‘Remembering 9/11’ Special To Air On Both Stations

Remembering September 11

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Anchor Chris May will anchor live from Ground Zero in New York City on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 as CBS 3 and The CW Philly conclude their Star Spangled Summer campaign this week.

All summer long, the stations, along with the CBS Radio stations locally, have been encouraging families, neighborhoods and businesses throughout our region to display the American Flag during one of the most patriotic times of the year, from Flag Day, June 14th through Patriot’s Day, September 11th.

As the campaign counts down to the somber 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks this Sunday, the stations will air special commemorative spots and expanded news coverage all week and a half-hour special hosted by Chris May and Susan Barnett. Remembering 9/11: Ten Years Later airs tomorrow, September 7, 7-7:30 p.m. on CBS 3. The program airs the following night, September 8, 10:30 p.m. on The CW Philly.

In the half hour special, Barnett speaks to two survivors of the World Trade Center attack while May talks to several people who lost family members on 9/11. Anchors Ukee Washington, Dave Huddleston and Pat Ciarrocchi also contribute reports, including Ciarrocchi’s visit to Lower Makefield’s Garden of Reflection, a local monument built to both honor those lost and heal a community.

In addition, May will report live from Ground Zero beginning Saturday night, September 10th and through the 11th. CBS 3 coverage begins at 5 a.m. Sunday through 8 a.m. The station will join the CBS Network at 8 a.m. for special news coverage anchored by Scott Pelley live from Ground Zero until 11 a.m. CBS 3 returns to local programming at 11 for a special one-hour edition of Eyewitness News

Other highlights on CBS 3 that day include a special edition of 60 Minutes at 7 p.m. followed by the documentary 9/11:10 Years Later narrated by Robert De Niro.
