Cumulus Media's Westwood One has announced "30 Years After the Fall: The Legacy of the Berlin Wall," a news special exploring the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Correspondent Chas Henry will host the program, reporting from the site where the Berlin Wall once stood. Henry will also provide coverage for Westwood One newscasts and live custom reports for radio affiliates on the anniversary.

Three decades after its fall, Henry will be talking to scholars about why the wall was constructed and with residents who watched it come down. Built in 1961, the 27-mile wall separated East and West Berlin, dividing the city's residents between the Soviet Union's Communism and Western Europe. At least 140 people died at and around the barrier, which was designed to keep East Germans from escaping an authoritarian Communist regime. The wall came down in November 1989 following civil unrest in East Berlin and political pressure from the West, reuniting the city in a joyous celebration.

The half-hour news special will air Thanksgiving weekend.
