July 12 will mark the six month anniversary of the tragic earthquake in Haiti and newsers including CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Sanjay Gupta, who were both closely associated with their coverage of the disaster earlier this year, are returning to the country for the occasion.
Cooper and Gupta — along with Gary Tuchman and Ivan Watson — will anchor from Port Au Prince on Monday and Tuesday of next week and will revisit some of the stories they covered in the disaster’s aftermath. Cooper, who last reported there on February 12, was the first anchor in Haiti following the earthquake and spent nearly a month anchoring “AC360″ from the region. Cooper’s been on the road quite a bit in the first half of 2010, also anchoring from the Gulf Coast regularly over the past six weeks.
Additionally, David Muir will return to Haiti for ABC News starting tonight for a series of reports called “World News Returns to Haiti,” which continues through the anniversary on the 12th.
NBC News Chief Science and Health Correspondent Robert Bazell returned today to report on the anniversary for “Nightly News,” revisiting hospitals he profiled for the newscast.
Matt Frei returns for a “BBC World News America” special edition on Monday.
“PBS NewsHour” Senior Correspondent Ray Suarez returns for a multi-part series of reports from Haiti each day from Monday-Thursday.
