Anderson
Cooper

Journalist / TV Host

Cooper has been with CNN since 2001, but as of late has been burnishing new skills well beyond those required by his regular weeknight program, “Anderson Cooper 360.” His semi-inebriated antics with co-host Andy Cohen have made CNN’s New Year’s Eve coverage a unique event, and he has embraced digital formats with a short, streaming counterpart to his linear show. Cooper also contributes regularly to CBS News’ “60 Minutes” and remains a central part of some of the most important elements of CNN’s national coverage, holding forth during events as disparate as Election Night or the launch of Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin launch. In September, he published a book that explored his own ancestry, “Vanderbilt: The Rise and Fall of an American Dynasty.”
