Jump To Cooper Anderson's Stats
Call Anderson Cooper steely eyed if only you could catch him as he traipse around the world catching dangerous news stories to feature as the anchor of CNN's Anderson Cooper 360. Cooper does have a home studio in New York City, but he is usually on the run after tallying up award winning coverage of all events major. That compulsion to cover breaking news no matter the personal danger has put him in the forefront of world changing events and pushed his net worth up to $164,822,100.
With a mother like Gloria Vanderbilt, Cooper has learned not to shy away from public tragedy. As a journalist he has covered huge breaking stories, including the tsunami damage in Sri Lanka in 2005, he reported on the death of Pope John Paul II, he covered the fallout from the damage by Katrina in New Orleans and recent events in Libya as it spiraled away from the control of Muammar Gaddafi.
With his impassioned style of reporting, the award hardware has been a constant in his career. Multiple times Anderson has been nominated for Emmys and multiple times he has walked off with the Statue. He has won awards for his humanitarian reporting when he did coverage of the earthquake in Haiti. He has collected Peabody, GLAAD and National Headliner awards too.
His tenure through the ranks of broadcasting covers a myriad of responsibilities. He first served as a co-anchor on World News Now. After that stint, Anderson hosted a television show called the Mole. Deciding that he needed to get back into broadcast journalism, Cooper launched a modest Anderson Cooper 360 that has grown and grown to its featured place on CNN.
Cooper recently signed a deal to begin a daytime talk show, but details have not been released. His fame seems to be contagious and his net worth has caught that disease.
