Anderson Cooper is the first major news anchor on the ground in Haiti.
The CNN anchor who made his name covering Hurricane Katrina flew out of New York at 1AM and filed his first report from the earthquake-shaken region Wednesday morning.
Katie Couric has also used Twitter to announce that she's on her way:
Other journalists expected to report from Haiti, according to TVNewser, include NBC's Brian Williams, Ann Curry and Al Roker as well as Kerry Sanders, Michelle Kosinski and Ron Allen; ABC's Kate Snow, Richard Besser, and Dan Harris; CBS' Jeff Glor, Byron Pitts, Kelly Cobiella and Dave Price; and Fox News' Bill Hemmer, Orlando Salinas, and Steve Harrigan.
Watch Cooper's first report below; the still photo is of Cooper and Victor Diaz Rua, Dominican Minister of Public Works, in a helicopter from Santo Domingo to Port-Au-Price shortly before 10AM Wednesday morning:
Mediaite's Rachel Sklar notes that MSNBC re-ran "Hardball" at 7PM rather than breaking into live coverage of the hurricane Tuesday night, and that "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" was noticeably silent on the disaster.
Fox News' Wendell Goler called in Tuesday from the Dominican Republic. Video here.
