Anderson Cooper Biography

Anderson Cooper is a television journalist and entertainer best known as the anchor of CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360°", a nightly newscast that goes beyond the headlines—keeping politicians and policymakers honest with in-depth reporting and investigations.

In addition to his shows on CNN, Cooper is also a regular correspondent for CBS's "60 Minutes", for which he has won numerous major journalism awards. Cooper helped lead CNN's Peabody Award-winning coverage of Hurricane Katrina and DuPont Award-winning coverage of the 2004 tsunami. Additionally, he has been awarded 8 Emmy Awards, including two for his coverage of the earthquake in Haiti, and an Edward R Murrow Award.

"Dispatches from the Edge", Cooper's memoirs about covering wars and disasters, topped The New York Times' best-seller list and other bestseller charts. In 2017, Cooper and his mother, Gloria Vanderbilt, co-authored "The Rainbow Comes and Goes: A Mother and Son on Life, Love, and Loss" complied from a series of emails, the memoir recounts their shared past, and Vanderbilt's tumultuous childhood.

Before joining CNN, Cooper was an ABC News correspondent and host of the network's reality program "The Mole". He anchored ABC's off-beat overnight newscast "World News Now", and was a correspondent for "World News Tonight" as well as "20/20". He previously served as chief international correspondent, reporting and producing stories, often on his own, from conflicts in Bosnia, Cambodia, Haiti, Israel, Myanmar, Russia, Rwanda, Somalia and South Africa.
