Anderson Cooper was bornon 3 June 1967 in New York City, New York, U.S, American, is Journalist. Anderson Hays Cooper is an award winning journalist and television personality well known for his work with the television channel CNN. Cooper is famous for his high journalistic standards and has covered several major news events around the world. War reporting especially fascinates him as he is often puzzled by the philosophical thought of why some people survive hardships while others succumb to them. He was always interested in news reporting and journalism though he does not have an educational background in either. He became a self-taught journalist when he entered Myanmar with a fake press pass and made his own news coverage which he sold to a small channel. He traveled over several war ravaged regions of the world and filmed stories from Vietnam, Somalia, and Rwanda. He then accepted a position as a correspondent for ABC News and then began hosting the reality show ‘The Mole’. He switched over to CNN as his real interest lay in broadcast news. He has since then covered a number of important stories like the tsunami in Sri Lanka, the death of Pope John Paul II, the conflicts in Egypt and Syria, and more recently, the Boston Marathon bombing, and the Sandy Hook shootings. Currently he hosts the television news show ‘Anderson Cooper 360°’.
