Anderson Cooper Vitals

Date of Birth: June 06, 1967
Birth Place: New York City

First Impression What makes him admirable is his







Why is He famous

When disaster strikes,and we peer into our televisions for the latest breaking news, it’s usually Anderson Cooper’s steely blue eyes peering back. Since joining CNN in 2001, Cooper has risen within the network’s ranks to anchor the acclaimed Anderson 360, while becoming the preeminent voice of reason throughout the decade’s most notable tragedies. From Hurricane Katrina and the earthquake in Haiti to the BP oil spill and the revolution in Egypt (where he was physically assaulted while on duty), Cooper’s unflinching pursuit of the facts and his relentless dedication to quality journalism have helped make a boundless world just a little bit smaller. His new syndicated daytime talk show, Anderson, premiered in September, which raises the question: Is Anderson the new Oprah?

Anderson Cooper Quote

"I think the notion of traditional anchor is fading away -- the all-knowing, all-seeing person who speaks from on high. I don't think the audience really buys that anymore. As a viewer, I know I don't buy it. I think you have to be yourself, and you have to be real, and you have to admit what you don't know and talk about what you do know, and talk about what you don't know as long as you say you don't know it. I tend to relate more to people on television who are just themselves, for good or for bad, than I do to someone who I believe is putting on some sort of persona. The anchorman on The Simpsons is a reasonable facsimile of some anchors who have that problem."


Male news anchors aren’t traditionally known for their model looks, especially not on CNN (Wolf Blitzer, Larry King and Aaron Brown, anyone?). But Anderson Cooper has single-handedly broken the mold. Thanks to his piercing blue eyes, silver hair and chiseled facial features, the former model (Cooper modeled for Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein when he was younger) is consistently voted one of the sexiest newscasters on television and was even named one of People Magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive in 2005. But don’t get too excited, ladies; it’s widely believed that the notoriously private Cooper is gay, despite his refusal to discuss his sexuality in public.

Anderson Is The CNN Star


Turner CEO Phil Kent on CNN: ‘We have some other shows that probably need to be replaced’

By Alex Weprin on May 31, 2012 -- 4:20 PM

Turner Broadcasting CEO Phil Kent spoke at the Nomura U.S. Media & Telecom Summit today, and he spent a good deal of his time answering questions about CNN, according to B&C’s Jon Lafayette.

Kent said that he is “very unhappy” with the network’s ratings situation, and laid some groundwork for changes ahead. As we noted last week, don’t expect Erin Burnett, Piers Morgan or Anderson Cooper to see any major changes to their shows, but there will be changes coming, beyond the recently announced additions of John Berman and Anthony Bourdain.
    The self-inflicted problems stems from the fact that “we haven’t put the best shows on the air,” he said.

    Kent said CNN’s current primetime lineup still has “very high potential.” He called Anderson Cooper a television news star who “at this moment is not getting a star’s ratings and that’s because of lead-ins.”

    Of the rest of CNN’s lineup, “we have some other shows that probably need to be replaced. This is an execution issue and to me, this is TV 101.”

    “The pressure on all of us, on me, on the CNN management from me is to raise the quality and the consistency of the quality,” he said. “I am a firm believer that if we raise the quality of these shows and make them a little surprising — sometimes also it’s also a little repetitive throughout the day — if we raise the quality and we do it with consistency the ratings will be just fine. I can’t tell you that we’ll beat this one or that one. But they’ll be a hell of a lot better than they are right now and we’ll be fine.”

Boy Buried Alive and Lives to Tell About It

Brothers Kyle and Nicholas speak to Anderson about the day Nicholas, 11, was buried in the sand after playing in a sand pit near their home in Michigan.

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player

The siblings were making tunnels in the sand, when one of the tunnels collapsed with Nicholas still inside.

Nicholas says he managed to remain calm and luckily had an air pocket close to his shoulder and was able to breathe. At first, Nicholas tried to dig his way out, but realized it was impossible.

Nicholas recalls the scary moment and says he tried to stay calm and hoped that help would arrive soon.

Older brother Kyle, 16, ran to get help and was able to save his brother's life. This is the second time Kyle has rescued his brother from a dangerous situation. A few years ago, Nicholas fell through some ice, and Kyle was there to save him.

Nicholas smiles, "He's my favorite brother."

It's no holds barred when Kathy Griffin comes to town

Kathy Griffin, known for her rants about celebrity behavior and reality TV, says there's no lack of material for her show.

She's got fiery red hair, a razor-tongue, and can rattle even serious newscaster Anderson Cooper.

"I'm a tenacious mo-fo," Kathy Griffin said during a telephone interview. "I'm like Cher and a cockroach, I will be here after the apocalypse. I love what I do so much. You can't stop me from doing it everywhere and anytime I can."

Griffin returns to Ruth Eckerd Hall at 8 p.m. Friday and she wants fans to know she's bringing a lot of bite with her.

"As much as Bravo gives me a very long leash, I can still hang myself," said Griffin referring to her new show, "Kathy," on Bravo. "There is something that always gets bleeped, (on stage) I can trash talk all I want and get away with it. I can be even more uncensored."

Griffin, who is known for her rants about celebrity behavior and reality television, said there's no lack of material for her show.

"There's Miley Cyrus not wearing any pants, the Kardashians multiplying, Mark Zuckerberg not being the catch we thought," she adds. "Really, some of my material writes itself."

The "Housewives" franchise on Bravo is a big favorite, too, particularly the "Orange County" and "Atlanta" series.

" 'The Housewives of Orange County,' come on," she laughs. "Alexis, they call her Jesus Barbie, she thinks Costa Rica is a city in Mexico. She's an idiot."

Griffin has had a successful career as a female comic.

She won two Emmys for her Bravo reality series "My Life on the D List," she's a New York Times bestselling author, a four-time Grammy nominee and has more than 10-critically acclaimed specials to her name.

Her new show, "Kathy," which airs at 10 p.m. Thursday on Bravo, allows her to rant about whatever's on her mind, and that's plenty.

The show doesn't' feature celebrity guests, only what she calls "civilians," and that's just the way she likes it.

"If a celebrity comes on my show they have to know they are coming to play," Griffin said. "This is no holds barred. I have my 90-year-old alcoholic mother on the show. Even I can't believe the stuff that comes out of her mouth."

Griffin talks about an incident on the show when her mother, Maggie, commented that Mexicans love soccer. Griffin's Twitter page blew up with tweets from Mexicans supporting the comment.

"Somehow, it's kind of adorable when she says this stuff," Griffin adds. "(The show) is totally unscripted, from hot firefighters to brides who are getting married in 48 hours."

Despite her success in the world of comedy, Griffin said the comedic playing field remains very uneven.

"(Sexism) still exists in the industry," said Griffin about the number of male comedians vs. female comics. "The ratio is still about 100 to 1. Call up any comedy shows and you will have eight or nine boys — and one girl. I do believe female comedians have to work harder and jump higher than the boys."

Griffin, who has a huge gay fan base, says she connects with her gay fans and has a deep appreciation for them.

"Gay audiences are just better," Griffin said. "I don't mean to insult the heterosexual people, but gays and I found each other. I was the girl who dated that guy in high school who turned out to be gay while we were dating. (Griffin says they are still friends and he now works at Disney World.) I call them my unshakeable gays because they've dealt with so much, nothing I do can shock them."

Griffin also says her rapport — and friendship — with CNN's Cooper, is the real deal.

The two co-host CNN's New Year's Eve special, in which Griffin unexpectedly stripped down last year.

"Were pretty tight," she says of the relationship. "He lives in New York and I live in Los Angeles, but we have dinner and go out for pizza and hang out. He's become a good friend. We have a lot of fun on New Year's Eve. He lets me do my thing, he doesn't ask me what I'm going to say and he doesn't put restrictions on me. He's this super smart straight news guy and I'm not and (CNN) puts us together and just lets us go. I just love it. And it works."

At Ohio State University

Anderson Cooper shares tales of finding ‘true calling’

Cooper stopped by OSU Wednesday as part of OUAB’s ‘An evening with Anderson Cooper’ at the Mershon Auditorium May 30. Cooper discussed his journey to his career as a journalist and TV host on CNN’s ‘Anderson Cooper 360.’
-- Ayan Sheikh / Senior Lantern reporterAnderson

Anderson Cooper, anchor of CNN’S “Anderson Cooper 360” and star of his own daytime talk show, visited Ohio State’s campus Wednesday to share insight on his journey to becoming a reporter.

With his degree in Liberal Arts from Yale University, Cooper sought out to find his purpose in life.

“I didn’t set out to be a TV anchor. I graduated college not knowing what I wanted to do with my life, I really had no idea,” Cooper explained.

Cooper said he found himself drawn to hard news, particularly as a war correspondent; he described his early travel to Sub-Saharan Africa as eye-opening.

“It was the first time I had to talk myself out of a roadblock, it was the first time I had somebody point a gun at me in anger,” Cooper said.

Wanting to pursue a career as a foreign correspondent, Cooper began applying for entry-level positions at television stations like ABC. But he said he wasn’t very successful. Unable to find someone to give him a chance, Cooper then created his own opportunity.

“My thinking was, I should go places that are really dangerous and pretend to be a reporter and there won’t be a lot of people there,” Cooper said.

With a fake press pass his friend made and a borrowed video camera, Cooper embarked on his journey as a reporter.

During his two-hour talk at OSU, Cooper shared news clips of his reporting in Somalia, Rwanda, and his recent coverage of the Arab Spring where he and his camera crew were attacked.

While working on his coverage of the 1992 famine in Somalia, Cooper said he then realized that journalism was his “true calling.”

“I’ve never seen starvation … I’ve never seen a child die in front of my eyes.” Cooper said. “In Somalia, I really knew that I had found my calling. I knew I couldn’t stop the starvation … but I could bear witness to their struggles and I could provide testimony to their lives.”

Having lost his older brother during his senior year in college, Cooper said he wanted to go places where “the language of loss was spoken.”

“I wanted to be around others who were surviving so that I could myself learn how to survive,” Cooper said.

Having spent the first three years of his carreer as a foreign correspondent and having to witness countless bodies of civilians killed as a result of the genocide in Rwanda and the famine in Somalia, Cooper decided it was time for him to take a break from hard news and venture into other types of reporting.

“Rwanda was sort of the final straw. I decided after that, that I’ve been doing it too long … I was no longer responding the way you should be responding when you see something like this,” Cooper said.

Lisa Nishimura, fourth-year in marketing logistics management, said she was drawn to Cooper’s intelligence and his humility.

“He’s kinda got that down-to-earth quality, but at the same time he’s really good at delivering the hard facts.”

Cooper then went on to hosting ABC’s reality game show “The Mole” for two seasons before he was offered a position at CNN.

Cooper told the OSU audience that despite the often gruesome nature of wars, it is important to pay attention to the issues instead of turning a blind eye to them.

“It’s very tempting to ignore the sadness that other people have to live through … but I do think it’s important not to turn away,” Cooper said. “I think we have to look directly at things that scare us most.”

Today On 'Anderson' -- Cheating Death & Sterilization

How I Cheated Death / Forced Sterilization

Thursday, May 31, 2012

From a terrifying hostage stand off to being buried alive in sand, Anderson speaks with everyday people who defied the odds and cheated death. How did they find the strength to save themselves, and what can everyone learn from their situations?

Meet a woman who was held hostage in her home, at gunpoint, by her own husband. After twelve hours of being taunted and tormented, it all came to an end when the home was engulfed in flames. Find out how she survived. For the first time on the show, she meets the hero dispatcher who helped save her life.

How did an 11-year-old boy go from digging in the sand to being buried alive? Hear his frightening story and find out how a small air pocket, along with his ability to stay calm, helped save his life. Learn how you can survive a traumatic situation.

Then, a hidden and shameful part of our history that will shock you. Imagine the government said you were either too poor, too promiscuous or not smart enough to have children… and forced your sterilization. It happened in this country as late as the 1970s. Tens of thousands of Americans were sterilized against their will; men, women and even children.

Straight from the headlines, one woman shares her harrowing story of how a state government sterilized her over 44 years ago. Hear why she was targeted and what she wants everyone to know. Victims are speaking out, and they not only want an apology, they want justice. It's important to understand how this happened... so it never happens again.
