Journalist / TV Host

Cooper has become the éminence grise of CNN primetime, and the journalist has branched out into other media realms with contributions to “60 Minutes” and cross-country touring with AC2, aka an intimate evening with Anderson Cooper and Bravo phenom and best friend Andy Cohen. His “Anderson Cooper 360” has been a CNN staple since 2003, whether from the studio or frequently on the scene of breaking news, and the network continually looks to leverage Cooper’s cred and appeal, including a short-lived Facebook Watch program. When his legendary mother, Gloria Vanderbilt, passed away in June, Cooper’s on-air eulogy brought tears to a nation’s eyes. He has hosted CNN’s New Year’s Eve special since 2012, playing sympathetic straight man to a slew of attention-getting guest stars.
