Remembering a newsroom on 9/11


That is how a bold, banner headline atop the front page of The Repository on Sept. 12, 2001, remembered the previous day, one we now simply refer to as 9/11.

Twenty years ago today, the cover of the newspaper – as were the covers of newspapers throughout the nation – was dominated by solemn words and images of the destruction of the World Trade Center buildings in New York, at the Pentagon in Washington, and near an airport outside Pittsburgh.

But, 24 hours before, the morning had begun in the manner of a normal work day. It didn’t seem like a day that was going to change our world.

“A plane just hit a building in New York City,” I heard by a few minutes before 9 a.m. on Sept. 11, 2001.
