Anderson
Cooper

Journalist / TV Host

Cooper started 2020 like he always does, hosting CNN’s New Year’s Eve coverage with his pal Andy Cohen. But from there, it was a year like no other, and whether a global disease or racial strife, Cooper dissected the news as it transformed lives. Cooper and Dr. Sanjay Gupta regularly front CNN’s global town hall “Coronavirus, Facts and Fears,” with the host tearfully sharing his bliss at the close of an episode in May over the birth of son Wyatt. He anchors the channel’s other pandemic specials, including “BATS: The Mystery Behind COVID-19,” as well as the live digital show “Anderson Cooper Full Circle,” taking viewer questions on the most pressing news. “AC 360” had its best monthly delivery right ahead of the election, with over 2.1 million average viewers in October 2020, growing 75% in the 25-54 demo from a year ago.
