Monday: @andersoncooper Anchors @AC360 Live From Newtown, CT; Special “United in Newtown”

One month after the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting, Anderson Cooper will anchor a special AC360° “United in Newtown” , airing at 8 and 10pm.

Cooper will speak with Mark Kelly about the political action committee he launched with his wife Gabrielle Giffords, about their recent visit to Newtown and what their lives have been like in the two years since the shooting in Arizona.

And in honor of the lives lost, Country superstar Kenny Chesney recorded a special version of “Amazing Grace” for AC360°, which premiers on Monday’s program.

Cooper will also visit with family members of Newtown and ask about their push for change in gun control policy, and of the overwhelming support the community received from people around the world.  An example of which is evident when Gary Tuchman visits a warehouse filled with letters, toys and gifts sent to the town from every corner of the globe.
