9-11 Remembrance

 From our archives, on the day of: 

From Les Burkhardt

I just got off the phone with Joe Duenas of CBS TX and Lisa Shah of WCBS Master Control. WCBS was the only local NY TV station on the air for 3 days...They had an automatic switchover to the transmitter at the Empire State Building. NBC local is on the air as of this day but per Joe their signal is very weak.

The sad news is that 2 IBEW people were working at the WTC on the Tragic day.
Joe and Lisa gave me the name off the two.

Isais Rivera who joined WCBS during 1985

Bob Pattison who came from Boston and joined WCBS as a 4-03 tech about 1 and 1/2 year ago.

They are among the missing, but to the best of my knowledge they were working on the roof of the WTC.

I did not know either of these 2 individuals but our prayers go out to them and their families.
 Let us all say a prayer for our deceased fellow workers and
all those who perished on that fateful day.
 
Remember to fly your flag in remembrance
