77 WABC is dedicating 48-hours of programming to honoring 9/11 victims, first responders, and their families beginning Friday morning. Station owner John Catsimatidis will kick off the tribute with some remarks. 

“9/11 was the day everyone in America became a New Yorker,” said Catsimatidis. “We witnessed the tragedy of lost lives and the courage of our first responders as they raced into the burning towers.”

Saturday will mark the 20th anniversary of the fateful day that 19 terrorists from al-Qaeda hijacked four commercial airplanes, deliberately crashing two of the planes into the upper floors of the North and South Towers of the World Trade Center complex and a third plane into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia.

“We experienced the best in leadership from Rudy, George, and Bernie, and I thank them for joining us as WABC remembers 9/11, 20 years later,” Catsimatidis said. 

The tribute will be simulcast on WLIR-FM 107.1, the Hamptons, and streamed worldwide at wabcradio.com and on the WABC mobile app.

The attacks killed 2,977 people from 93 nations: 2,753 people were killed in New York; 184 people were killed at the Pentagon, and 40 people were killed on Flight 93.

Longtime Detroit reporter Kevin Dietz has been named full-time host at NewsTalk 760 WJR, he revealed on Twitter. Dietz has been hosting WJR Late Mornings since Frank Beckmann retired six months ago. 

“I took a pretty cool new job! Working 9-noon Monday -Friday on WJR 760,” he said. “I remember JP McCarthy as a kid on this station! I am blessed.”

The Emmy award-winning investigative reporter spent nearly 30-years at Detroit NBC affiliate WDIV before he was fired in 2019 for making an alleged racial comment about another reporter.

“The station has a zero-tolerance policy on racially insensitive comments, and they determined, despite the intent and context of my statement, that it violated the policy,” he said at the time.

Dietz garnered 17 Emmy awards in 26 years at WDIV. He began his career in Traverse City, Michigan in 1988.

WJR has not revealed if Dietz will continue hosting the show alone or if a co-host will be brought in.
