TVNewsers prepare for Haiti earthquake anniversary coverage. During the catastrophic event last year, many tvnewsers went themselves to see what was really going on in Haiti first-hand.

  • Fox News Channel is sending Steve Harrigan — who was there last year for the hurricane’s aftermath — back to Haiti. Harrigan will do live reports and packages across the FNC platforms beginning on Monday and throughout the week. He will report on numerous stories — including the state of Haiti and the cholera outbreak.

  • ABC’s Dan Harris will return to Port-Au-Prince this weekend. Harris will report on international aid and donations that have been distributed to date. Then Harris will visit with many of the Haitians he met when he reported on the quake last January.
