ABC's Good Morning America branded its show a special edition "GMA Halloween Superstorm" led by weather anchor Sam Champion in Battery Park City in New York. Chris Cumo and Josh Elliott were also out in the field in New York reporting on the storm's effect on transportation, with Jim Avila at Reagan airport in Washington, D.C. with an update on air travel.
Other ABC News correspondents in the field are Ginger Zee in Atlantic City, N.J.; Matt Gutman in Nags Head, N.C.; Linsey Davis in Philadelphia, Pa; Ron Caliborne in Long Island and David Kerley in Maryland. GMA also interviewed Rick Knabb of the National Hurricane Center in Miami.
CBS This Morning, the only morning show without a full-time weather anchor, had six correspondents in the field to cover the Hurricane story including Jeff Glor in Atlantic City, NJ; Chip Reid in Ocean City, MD; Jim Axelrod in Battery Park City and John Miller interviewing NYPD commissioner Ray Kelly.
As the other shows did, CTM covered the effect of the storm on the presidential campaign with Nancy Cordes in Orlando, Fla., where the Obama campaign canceled an event and Jan Crawford in Cleveland with the Romney campaign. Charlie Rose and Norah O'Donnell interviewed FEMA director Craig Fugate from the studio.
NBC's Today featured Al Roker from Point Pleasant Beach, NJ; Lester Holt in Virginia Beach, VA and Katy Tur in Mystic, CT. From the studio, Matt Lauer interviewed Connecticut Governor Daniel Malloy and Savannah Guthrie talked to FEMA's Fugate just after his hit on CTM.
In New York City, Today was preempted around 7:30 a.m. with local news coverage from NBC.
