Construction on the Tower of Voices continues at the Flight 93 National Memorial, in Shanksville, on Monday, June 11, 2018.

Two journalists with first-hand experience covering the Flight 93 crash on Sept. 11, 2001, will bring a media perspective to the next entry in the Flight 93 National Memorial Speaker Series.

Tim Lambert, a Harrisburg-based radio journalist who reported from the Flight 93 crash site — and whose family owned part of the 2,200 which are now part of the memorial — will be joined by Dennis Roddy, who covered the crash for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette .

Programs will take place at noon and 2 p.m. on July 21, and at 1 p.m. on July 22. Lambert will speak both days. Roddy will speak at the Saturday sessions only.

The final entry in the series will be Aug. 18 and 19, and will feature the perspective of two air-traffic controllers, including the first person on the ground to realize that Flight 93 had been hijacked.

Now in its second year, the Flight 93 Speaker Series is a joint effort of the National Park Service and the Friends of Flight 93 National Memorial. The summer-long series is presented by Somerset Trust Company.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
