NBC’s Dr. Nancy Snyderman returned to Haiti last week where she is providing reports for NBC News. “There’s still a lot of work to be done — people are still without homes, many need medical care,” Snyderman tells TVNewser. “I saw such tragedy and suffering in the early days after the earthquake. But now the shock has worn off and the deep pain continues.”
Though coverage has diminished in the two months following the earthquake, NBC is one of only a few networks in Haiti at the moment (CNN also has a crew). “This is exactly the time for us to stay with the Haitian people as they rebuild this country,” she said. “I will continue to come to Haiti as a reporter and tell the stories that matter. NBC News is committed for the long haul.”
For “Nightly News” this evening, she’ll have a report on the visit Presidents Clinton and Bush made to the area.
