stations will interrupt usual programming at 8:45 a.m. in each time zone to air a two-minute memorial, "Tributes and Triumphs: America's Day of Remembrance," followed by two minutes of silence and a special message. The time marks when the first plane struck the World Trade Center.

Stations will have access to the 33 reporters and radio program hosts broadcasting live from ground zero in New York City for special programming throughout the day, but stations will observe the day in whatever way the local management deems appropriate.

Radio company Westwood One, managed by Viacom-owned Infinity Broadcasting Corp., also announced special programming for Sept. 11 including an all-day, commercial-free broadcast of Fox News Radio.
