Broadcast Journalist and Anchor of CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360”
“A lot of compelling stories in the world aren’t being told, and the fact that people don’t know about them only compounds the suffering.” – Anderson Cooper
Anderson Cooper gives a fresh and fearless account of front-page news as anchor and host for CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360o. For 25 years, he’s covered most of the major events in the world, providing a new breed of broadcast journalism that unveils the human-side of each story. Most recently he has played a pivotal role in CNN’s political and election coverage and has immersed viewers deeper into the lives rocked by the mass shooting in Orlando, Fla. and the conflicts in Egypt, Iraq and Syria.
Prior to joining CNN, Cooper was an ABC news correspondent and before that, Channel One’s chief international correspondent, bringing stories from Bosnia, Haiti and Somalia to 12,000 classrooms nationwide.
A best-selling author, Cooper’s Dispatches from the Edge, includes memoirs of war and disaster coverage including the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans — a CNN story that also won the Peabody Award. His most recent book, The Rainbow Comes and Goes (2016), shares the correspondence between him and his mother, Gloria Vanderbilt.
During our last meeting of the series be ready for the unexpected as Cooper delivers his “360o Look at World Events.”
