Anderson Cooper's 10pm Show To Get The Axe From CNN

Feb 5, 2013 10:00 AM

Anderson Cooper's 10pm show is set to be cancelled by CNN chief Jeff Zucker to make room for a big new hire, network sources have revealed.

The veteran jouralist, 45, will still host his show, Anderson Cooper 360, at 8pm every night, but the repeat broadcast will be axed so there will be an open slot for a new show.

Cooper isn't the only getting his schedule moved around, though! CNN OutFront host Erin Burnett will now helm a morning show with ABC hire Chris Cuomo.

"Losing an hour of Anderson a night means that Jeff has more to play with, hire heavyweight talent and play chess with the rest of his primetime shows," a source divulged.

At least Andy Coop isn't getting kicked off TV completely!

Anderson Cooper Opens Up About Coming Out

Sep 11, 2012 11:25 AM

acooper121111_01_X17pic.jpgAnderson Cooper is proudly discussing his sexuality as a gay man.

The CNN journalist opened up about coming out on the second season premiere of his talk show. Cooper told the audience:

    "I came out in high school. I told my friends, I told my family. I've always been out to my co-workers and stuff. It's just not something I talked about publicly, because as a reporter, I didn't think it was appropriate. It didn't seem like part of my job."

As for why Anderson came out publicly, he adds:

    "It just got to the point where -- I've been torn for a long time between a desire as a reporter to just do my job and be known as a reporter -- and at the same time I do think visibility is important."

Anderson Cooper: "I'm Gay"

Jul 2, 2012 10:45 AM

acooper121111_01_230.jpg Anderson Cooper has come out as a gay man in an open letter to political blogger Andrew Sullivan.

The CNN journalist, 45, revealed his sexual orientation Monday, writing a heart felt message to his longtime pal.

"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," he explained.

Sullivan had reached out to the talk show host for comment regarding an emerging trend about "gay people in public life who come out in a much more restrained and matter-of-fact way than in the past." Cooper, whose sexuality has long been questioned, detailed his decision to refrain from responding to the speculation until now.

"I have tried to maintain some level of privacy in my life. Part of that has been for purely personal reasons... But I've also wanted to retain some privacy for professional reasons. Since I started as a reporter in war zones 20 years ago, I've often found myself in some very dangerous places. For my safety and the safety of those I work with, I try to blend in as much as possible, and prefer to stick to my job of telling other people's stories, and not my own," he went on to reveal.

So why set the record straight now?

"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," he concluded.

We applaud Mr. Cooper's courage and honesty!

Teen In Coma After Following Anderson Cooper's Instructions

Oct 2, 2011 09:15 AM

AndersonCooperTeenComa230.jpgAnderson Cooper's new daytime talk show has only been on the air for three weeks, but it's already dealing with a major problem.

A teenager is in a coma after the show's producers allegedly encouraged him to record the "crazy stuff" he did. The home footage would have been for an episode covering how the adolescent mind works.

The teen filmed himself skateboarding and fell, suffering a serious injury to his head. He is now in a coma.

The episode will not be broadcast. Said the show in a statement:

    "As part of our routine process, we ask guests for video footage and photos. We did not provide the family with a camera. On the morning that they were supposed to travel to NYC, we learned that the teen had been injured. We are very concerned about him, and are thinking of him and his family at this time."

Cooper said in a personal statement on Saturday evening:

    "I was very saddened to hear the news of this accident, and want to express my deepest concerns for the teenager who was injured. I take this situation seriously, and my thoughts and prayers for his health, well-being and recovery are with him and his family."

Anderson Cooper interviewed his mom Gloria Vanderbilt for his new talk show. Vanderbilt opened up about her son Carter's 1988 suicide.

The legendary fashion designer, 87, recalls the moment her then-23-year-old son Carter was hanging off the ledge of the family's 14th floor penthouse apartment in New York. She tells Anderson:

    "When he went … I thought he was going to come back, but he didn't. He let go, and there was a moment when I thought I was going to jump over after him. I thought of you and it stopped me from [jumping]."

Vanderbilt, who wrote the book A Mother's Story back in 1997 about the tragedy, added, "You never get over it, but you learn to live with it."
