There are certain events in life where you remember exactly where you were and what you were dong when they took place.

Many people probably have a Princess Diana story or a Michael Jackson story.

For veteran news anchor Sandra Sully, that one moment that has stuck with her forever is the September 11 attacks on the world trade centre in New York, 2001.

And that’s not only because it was such a profoundly shocking and tragic event, but because she was behind the news desk doing a live broadcast when the first plane hit.

Hear the full story here:

This year Sandra Sully is celebrating 30-years at Channel 10 and throughout her three decades behind that news desk, nothing has ever quite compared to that day.


Speaking about it with Jonesy & Amanda this morning, Sully told us that she could “remember it so vividly”.

Sandra’s instincts told her that this was no accident and when the second plane hit the World Trade centre she went live on air to reveal that it was an act of terrorism.

Another moment that will be hard to ever forget for Sandra was the 1997 Thredbo landslide.

“I’ll never forget it,” Sandra said.
