Cooper’s father died while he was just 10 years old during heart surgery, something which greatly influenced the way he lived his life.

Career Accomplishments

Cooper started his journalism career with Channel One where he was a fact-checker. Channel One produces news that is mainly meant for schools around the country. He later felt bored with the day-to-day job and decided to visit Southeast Asia. His footage of the strife in parts of Africa and Myanmar gave him the chief international correspondent role in Channel One. His reports attracted so much attention to an extent that he was hired by ABC News and later a co-anchor of World News Now. He left for ABC’s reality show The Mole in 2000 after growing weary of the demanding schedule. Cooper was compelled to return to the news after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and he was hired by CNN in January 2002 as a substitute anchor and correspondent. In 2003, Cooper was given his own show, where he was tasked with examining all the major stories of the day in-depth. The Anderson Cooper 360 became an instant success and Cooper himself has since then been a household name. This was mainly propelled through his coverage of events such as Pope John II's death, Hurricane Katrina, and the Lebanon revolution. Cooper has won a number of major honors, including Emmy Awards.
