In 2002, Smith joined The Early Show. He's also hosted several episodes of Modern Marvels, seen on The History Channel. His most notable "Modern Marvels episode is an episode titled "World Trade Center: An Obituary," a documentary featuring the structural design feats of the former World Trade Center complex that was filmed prior to the attacks, and planned to air at around the time the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks occurred. In that documentary, his most poignant remarks were "The World Trade Center had a life, too. It lived for 27 years as a landmark, a feat of engineering, a tourist attraction, a workplace. "We here at the History Channel had been planning this hour about the life of the World Trade Center prior to the awful events of Sept. 11. This hour was supposed to be a documentary. It is now an obituary."
