The Whole Story with Anderson Cooper Marks the Fifteenth Anniversary of Flight 1549 in “Miracle on the Hudson” Premiering Sunday, January 7 at 8pm ET/PT
EPISODE FEATURES AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH CAPTAIN SULLY SULLENBERGER
NEW YORK, NY – (January 2, 2024) – Ahead of Flight 1549’s anniversary, The Whole Story with Anderson Cooper is exclusively sitting down with its captain, Ambassador C.B. “Sully” Sullenberger, and passengers to reflect on how this extraordinary event has changed their lives forever. “Miracle on the Hudson” will premiere on Sunday, January 7 at 8pm ET/PT.
On January 15, Captain Sullenberger and First Officer Jeff Skiles miraculously landed US Airways Flight 1549 safely in the Hudson River, saving all 155 people on board. The heroic act, arguably the most famous emergency landing in modern aviation history, captivated the nation and was later dramatized in the 2016 Warner Bros. Pictures film Sully.
In a series of intimate interviews with Sullenberger and his wife, Lorrie, and passengers Vallie Collins, Ric Elias, Barry Leonard, Clay Presley, Pam Seagle, and Eric Stevenson, The Whole Story reveals the harrowing details of that fateful day and the psychological effects that continue fifteen years later, leading some to drastically alter the course of their lives.
The Whole Story with Anderson Cooper, a CNN Original, is executive produced by Susan Chun.
The Whole Story with Anderson Cooper will stream live for pay TV subscribers via CNN.com, CNN connected TV and mobile apps on Sunday, January 7. “Miracle on the Hudson” will be available on demand beginning Monday, January 8 to pay TV subscribers via CNN.com, CNN connected TV and mobile apps, and Cable Operator Platforms.
