On April 30, 2020, Cooper announced the birth of his son Wyatt Morgan by a surrogate on April 27. Though Cooper and Maisani are no longer together, the pair plan to co-parent Wyatt.

2018

In March 2018, Cooper confirmed that he and his long-time boyfriend Benjamin Maisani had split up.

In 2017 Andy Cohen joined Cooper in succeeding Kathy Griffin as co-host of CNN’s New Year’s Eve coverage. They again co-hosted CNN’s New Year’s Eve for 2018.

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. Cooper said his goal in writing the book and correspondence was to leave “nothing left unsaid” between the pair. It landed on multiple best-seller lists the year of its publication.

2015

Andy Cohen and Cooper announced that they would be going on a national tour to perform their conversational stage show AC2 beginning in March 2015. The tour opened in Boston, followed by Miami Beach, Chicago and Atlanta. The idea for the show came about after Cooper interviewed Cohen about his then-latest book, The Andy Cohen Diaries, at an event at the 92nd Street Y in New York City. Since then, the two-man show has continued to tour, reaching over 50 cities as of October 2018.

2014

My last year at ABC, I was working overnights anchoring this newscast, then during the day at 20/20. So I was sleeping in two- or four-hour shifts, and I was really tired and wanted a change. I wanted to clear my head and get out of news a little bit, and I was interested in reality TV—and it was interesting.

I’ve begun to consider whether the unintended outcomes of maintaining my privacy outweigh personal and professional principle. It’s become clear to me that by remaining silent on certain aspects of my personal life for so long, I have given some the mistaken impression that I am trying to hide something—something that makes me uncomfortable, ashamed or even afraid. This is distressing because it is simply not true. … The fact is, I’m gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud.

In 2014, Cooper and his partner purchased Rye House, a historic estate in Connecticut. Apple CEO Tim Cook turned to Cooper for advice before he subsequently made the decision to publicly come out as gay.

2012

Cooper is openly gay; according to The New York Times, he is “the most prominent openly gay journalist on American television.” For years, Cooper avoided discussing his private life in interviews. On July 2, 2012, however, he gave Andrew Sullivan permission to publish an email that stated, in part:

2011

From September 2011 to May 2013, he also served as host of his own eponymous syndicated daytime talk show, Anderson Live.

In September 2010 Warner Bros. and Telepictures (both corporate siblings of CNN) announced that Cooper had signed an agreement to host a nationally syndicated talk show. The journalist Brian Stelter (at the time employed by The New York Times, and now by CNN), reported on Twitter that the new Warner Bros. daytime talk show would be named Anderson (now titled Anderson Live). The show premiered on September 12, 2011, and, as part of negotiations over the talk show deal, Cooper signed a new multi-year contract with CNN to continue as the host of Anderson Cooper 360°. On October 29, 2012, it was announced that Anderson Live would end at the conclusion of its second season. The show, slightly renamed after season one and revamped with a variety of co-hosts, failed to achieve the ratings distributor Warner Brothers hoped for. The final Anderson Live aired on May 30, 2013.

Cooper was the narrator for the 2011 Broadway revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, directed by Rob Ashford and starring Daniel Radcliffe.

2007

Cooper was also a fill-in co-host for Regis Philbin for the TV talk show Live with Regis and Kelly in 2007 when Philbin underwent triple-bypass heart surgery. As of 2019, he still periodically serves as guest co-host on Live when one of the two hosts cannot go into work.

In early 2007 Cooper signed a multi-year deal with CNN that would allow him to continue as a contributor to 60 Minutes, as well as doubling his salary from $2 million annually to a reported $4 million.

In 2007 he began hosting CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute, a show which honors and recognizes extraordinary deeds by ordinary people.

In October 2007 Cooper began hosting the documentary Planet in Peril, with Sanjay Gupta and Jeff Corwin on CNN. In 2008, Cooper, Gupta, and Lisa Ling from National Geographic Explorer teamed up for a sequel, Planet in Peril: Battle Lines, which premiered in December 2008.

Cooper has been a correspondent for the CBS News program 60 Minutes since 2007, while concurrently serving as a CNN anchor and correspondent.

While promoting his book, Cooper told Oprah Winfrey that he had dyslexia as a child. In August 2007, he confirmed his “mild dyslexia” on The Tonight Show to Jay Leno, who also has dyslexia.

2006

In May 2006 Cooper published a memoir for HarperCollins, Dispatches from the Edge, detailing his life and work in Sri Lanka, Africa, Iraq and Louisiana over the previous year. Some of the book’s proceeds are donated to charity. The book topped The New York Times Best Seller list on June 18, 2006.

2005

In 2005 Cooper covered a number of important stories, including the tsunami damage in Sri Lanka; the Cedar Revolution in Beirut, Lebanon; the death of Pope John Paul II; and the royal wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles. In August 2005, he covered the Niger famine from Maradi.

In 2005, during CNN coverage of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, he confronted Sen. Mary Landrieu, Sen. Trent Lott, and the Reverend Jesse Jackson about their perception of the government response. As Cooper said later in an interview with New York magazine, “Yeah, I would prefer not to be emotional and I would prefer not to get upset, but it’s hard not to when you’re surrounded by brave people who are suffering and in need.” A contributor to Broadcasting & Cable magazine wrote: “In its aftermath, Hurricane Katrina served to usher in a new breed of emo-journalism, skyrocketing CNN’s Anderson Cooper to superstardom as CNN’s golden boy and a darling of the media circles because of his impassioned coverage of the storm.”

In September 2005 the format of CNN’s NewsNight was changed from 60 to 120 minutes to cover the unusually violent hurricane season. To help distribute some of the increased workload, Cooper was temporarily added as co-anchor to Aaron Brown. This arrangement was reported to have been made permanent the same month by the president of CNN’s U.S. operations, Jonathan Klein, who has called Cooper “the anchorperson of the future.” Following the addition of Cooper, the ratings for NewsNight increased significantly; Klein remarked that “[Cooper’s] name has been on the tip of everyone’s tongue.” To further capitalize on this, Klein announced a major programming shakeup on November 2, 2005. Cooper’s 360° program would be expanded to 2 hours and shifted into the 10 pm ET slot formerly held by NewsNight, with the third hour of Wolf Blitzer’s The Situation Room filling in Cooper’s former 7 pm ET slot. With “no options” left for him to host shows, Aaron Brown left CNN, ostensibly having “mutually agreed” with Jonathan Klein on the matter.

2003

On September 8, 2003, Cooper became the anchor of Anderson Cooper 360° on CNN. Describing his philosophy as an anchor, he has said:

2001

Cooper left The Mole after its second season to return to broadcast news. In 2001, he joined CNN, commenting, “Two seasons was enough, and 9/11 happened, and I thought I needed to be getting back to news.” His first position at CNN was to anchor alongside Paula Zahn on American Morning. In 2002 he became CNN’s weekend prime-time anchor. Since 2002, he has hosted CNN’s New Year’s Eve special from Times Square.

1999

In 1995 Cooper became a correspondent for ABC News, eventually rising to the position of co-anchor on its overnight World News Now program on September 21, 1999. In 2000 he switched career paths, taking a job as the host of ABC’s reality show The Mole.

1990

During college, Cooper spent two summers as an intern at the Central Intelligence Agency while studying political science. He pursued journalism with no formal journalistic education and is a self-proclaimed “news junkie since [he] was in utero.” After his first correspondence work in the early 1990s, he took a break from reporting and lived in Vietnam for a year, during which time he studied the Vietnamese language at Vietnam National University, Hanoi.

1989

Cooper was educated at the Dalton School, a private co-educational university preparatory day school in New York City. At age 17, after graduating from Dalton a semester early, Cooper traveled around Africa for several months on a “survival trip”. He contracted malaria on the trip and was hospitalized in Kenya. Describing the experience, Cooper wrote “Africa was a place to forget and be forgotten in.” Cooper attended Yale University, where he resided in Trumbull College. He was inducted into the Manuscript Society, majoring in political science and graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in 1989.

1988

Cooper’s older brother, Carter Vanderbilt Cooper, committed suicide on July 22, 1988, at age 23, by jumping from the 14th-floor terrace of Vanderbilt’s New York City penthouse apartment. Gloria Vanderbilt later wrote about her son’s death in the book A Mother’s Story, in which she expressed her belief that the suicide was caused by a psychotic episode induced by an allergy to the anti-asthma prescription drug salbutamol. Anderson cites Carter’s suicide for sparking his interest in journalism.

1978

Cooper’s father suffered a series of heart attacks while undergoing open-heart surgery, and died January 5, 1978, at the age of 50. Cooper considers his father’s book Families to be “sort of a guide on…how he would have wanted me to live my life and the choices he would have wanted me to make. And so I feel very connected to him.”

1970

Cooper’s media experience began early. As a baby, he was photographed by Diane Arbus for Harper’s Bazaar. At the age of three, Cooper was a guest on The Tonight Show on September 17, 1970, appearing with his mother. At the age of nine, he appeared on To Tell the Truth as an impostor. From age 10 to 13, Cooper modeled with Ford Models for Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and Macy’s.

1967

Anderson Hays Cooper (born June 3, 1967) is an American broadcast journalist. He is the primary anchor of the CNN news show Anderson Cooper 360°. The program is usually broadcast live from a New York City studio; however, Cooper often broadcasts live from CNN’s studios in Washington, D.C., or on location for breaking news stories. In addition, he is a correspondent for 60 Minutes.

1950

Cooper has two older half-brothers, Leopold Stanislaus “Stan” Stokowski (b. 1950), and Christopher Stokowski (b. 1952), from Gloria Vanderbilt’s ten-year marriage to the conductor Leopold Stokowski. Also in 2014, Cooper appeared in Henry Louis Gates’ Finding Your Roots, where he learned of an ancestor, Burwell Boykin, who was a slave owner from the southern United States.
