MitchellZuckoffWelcome to the Tuesday edition of “The South Shore’s Morning News”:

Coming up at 7:11: On the morning of September 11, 2001, bestselling author and journalist Mitchell Zukoff was on book leave from the Boston Globe when his editor called: airplanes had struck the Twin Towers of New York’s World Trade Center in an apparent terrorist attach, both planes had taken off from Logan. Zuckoff rushed to the newsroom and wrote the lead story that appeared on page one of the Globe the next day, and he would continue writing for months after. Fall and Rise: The Story of 9/11, the first comprehensive nonfiction narrative of that terrible day, is out now and Mitchell joins us after the news at 7:11 to talk about it.  

Later at 9:11; “Nuking the Moon: And Other Intelligence Schemes and Military Plots Left on the Drawing Board” offers a new perspective on intelligence history, giving readers a wild tour of 21 utterly fascinating missions, schemes and weapons that were planned and tested but never executed. Author Vince Houghton joins us at 9:11 to share some of these incredible stories. 

And then at 9:22; it’s “Paws & Claws” where we focus on the animal world. This week, Ashley from the Scituate Animal Shelter calling in to talk about all the bunnies!
