According to

http://www.avherald.com/h?article=442f03cb&opt=0

the plane had just been pushed back from the gate when the incident occurred, hence the plane would have been under ground control. Unfortunately the Dulles feed on liveatc does not have ground frequencies. (that's my guess anyway)

Ah.  Then I guess this should be moved to the listener forum since there is no audio.
