Anderson Cooper, Soledad O’Brien Headed to New Orleans

CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Soledad O’Brien are headed to New Orleans to cover the approaching storm Isaac, expected to be upgraded to a hurricane by the time it reaches landfall.

Their detour to the Big Easy is the latest shift in news network resources from the Republican National Convention in Tampa. On Sunday, Fox News dispatched Shepard Smith to do his show from New Orleans, rather than Tampa as had originally been planned.

Cooper already was doing live reports on Sunday from the floor of the Tampa Bay Times Forum, and was to have been among the anchors primetime coverage. O’Brien was to have done her show, “Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien,” from the CNN Grill, a makeshift restaurant and studio that the news network has converted from a parking garage just outside the arena.
