Nov 06, 2001 | 9:46am EST

New York's all-news channel, NY1, plans to add a nightly newscast on Wednesday that will be devoted to the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks and how they have affected New Yorkers.

The feature, titled New York Tonight, is expected to employ a format similar to ABC's Nightline, the New York Post reported today.

Steve Paulus, NY1's general manager, told the newspaper that the reason for instituting the news program is that "the Trade Center [attack] is the biggest story to ever happen to New York and we're a New York City station."
