Cable Networks To Suspend Programming Sept. 11th

Eight cable television networks have announced plans to suspend programming on the morning of Sept. 11 to honor the victims of last year's terrorist attacks.

At 8:46 a.m EDT, the A&E Television Networks - A&E, The History Channel, The Biography Channel and History International - will fade to black. For the following hour and 43 minutes, they will show a continuous scroll of the names of attack victims.

Similarly, the Scripps Networks - HGTV, The Food Network, The DIY Network and Fine Living - will stop regular programming at 8:30 a.m ET. For two hours, the networks will show "a series of images, words and music intended to inspire quiet reflection.''
