Cooper With Starving Children In Niger

By Brian 

CNN’s Anderson Cooper will anchor 360 from Maradi, Niger tonight. “Children are starving to death,” the teaser says, and Cooper is there to “put a human face on the hunger crisis.”

“Anderson has a passion for this story,” CNN/U.S. president Jon Klein told TVNewser today, adding that Cooper was on vacation in Africa last month.

This morning, 360 EP David Doss said Cooper had packaged several powerful pieces, including a reporter’s notebook about his 12-hour drive from the airport and a story about several children who are clinging to life.
