Corwin has been doing live reports from the Gulf Coast for MSNBC during daytime programming since Monday.

Corwin created a documentary called “100 Heartbeats” for MSNBC in November as a part of the “Future Earth” series. At the time, he told TVNewser he hoped it would lead to more opportunities with the network.
