Bill Baker, President Emeritus of WNET, reflects on his experience of 9/11 while working at the station.

He recalls the installation of WNET‘s first digital transmitter on Tower One of the World Trade Center in July 2001, and how just two months later, engineer Rod Coppola, tasked with maintaining the transmitter, lost his life on the day our nation, our city, and our company were changed forever.
