We Interrupt This Broadcast

10th Anniversary Edition

The Events That Stopped Our Lives...from the Hindenburg Explosion to the Virginia Tech Shooting

The classic New York Times bestseller, updated to include the defining events of the past five years.

Since 1998, We Interrupt This Broadcast has presented more than 800,000 readers with the most important, news-breaking events of our times. These are the events that stopped us in our tracks as a television or radio announcer uttered those four words: “We interrupt this broadcast...”

Relive the day you first heard the news:

  • American troops capture Saddam Hussein in Iraq
  • Hurricane Katrina hits New Orleans
  • A gunman kills more than 30 people at Virginia Tech

Experience these and 43 other history-making moments through memorable audio, vivid photographs, and compelling text. From the dawn of electronic media to today, We Interrupt This Broadcast recounts the details of the events and spotlights the photographs that tell the stories.

This edition features 3 audio CDs with actual broadcasts and includes a new afterword from NBC’s Brian Williams.

“Altogether, the book and CDs are a keeper, offering both valuable history lessons and a dramatic record of the definitive moments for generations of Americans.” —Publishers Weekly

“The CDs deliver an exciting, engaging exercise. The events are all hugely memorable. The bits of historic sound are powerfully evocative.” —Baltimore Sun

“Garner has done a masterful job of collecting these moments, and with the accompanying CDs, one can listen over and over to the moments that shaped this century.” —Booklist
