Here is how CNN Headline News handled incoming breaking news and video of 9/11. Anchors were Rudi Bakhtiar and Charles Molineaux. She seemed out of her depth and Molineaux took over.

Wow, very freaky hearing the caller talk about the second plane approaching before it hits.

I just timed the video, it was about two second difference. That’s probably the time it takes from the camera to make it back to CNN in NY and down to Atlanta. Fiber probably wasn’t in use much then and perhaps it was satellite backhauled or through other means.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

The part of that video, that made me feel really uncomfortable was the last advert break before the second plane with the CNN Headline News trailer that's starts with "In the next 15 minutes..."

Especially when we all are now acutely aware what exactly was going to unfold live in that 15 minutes

Not to get too off track but wow, never seen that clip before. CNNfn and HN footage from those days is hard to come by.

Lot of old Headline News stuff here Justin, including half hours.

The Headline News channel and its experienced anchors were usually unflappable. When a breaking story happened they smoothly inserted the story and kept going. No deer in headlights moments. They kept it moving and nonstop. They were machines. News was the star. CNN really wasted a legacy channel. Now they ceded that space to other players and they will never get that cache back. They ceded it CBSN and other OTT operators. This should have been something could have easily dominated. CBS figured out a cost effective version of a rolling news channel that works in this modern age. Now all of CNN's Domestic output looks like personality driven talking head analyst programmes. What a Dumb move.
I'm here to give you something to talk about!
