He worked at the Times since 2006. His latest series focused on Apple and was named The iEconomy.  It won a Pulitzer prize for explanatory reporting in 2013. Before that, he  contributed to other series, including Golden Opportunities, The Reckoning and Toxic Waters.

NSLS live speaker broadcast of journalist Anderson Cooper set for March 12

UVa-Wise News - Mon, 03/06/2017 - 3:35pm

NSLS is hosting a video speaker broadcast featuring Journalist Anderson Cooper Sunday, March 12 at 7 p.m. in Cantrell Banquet Hall.

Anderson Hays Cooper is an American journalist, television personality, and author. He is the primary anchor of the CNN news show Anderson Cooper 360°. The program is normally 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 major correspondent for 60 Minutes.

Cooper’s first job was as a fact-checker at Channel One, a news network that broadcast daily reports into American classrooms. Bored by the desk job and unable to get an interview at any of the major networks’ news departments, he decided to go to Vietnam to study the language, and took a video camera with him. He stopped off in Myanmar first, and was able to film some footage about that country’s internal strife thanks to some faked press credentials a friend had made for him on a computer. After that, he went back to Africa, and filed stories for Channel One as a freelancer on such topics as a spreading famine Somalia. By 1993, the network had promoted Cooper to chief international correspondent. His reports from international danger zones like the Balkans and central Africa attracted the attention of the major news organizations, and in 1995 Cooper was hired by ABC News.

Cooper served as a correspondent for the network and then the co-anchor of World News Now , its overnight-news broadcast. After he became tired of the arduous schedule—the show aired from 3 a.m. to 5 a.m.—he took a break by accepting a job in 2000 as host of a new ABC reality series, The Mole. After the September 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, Cooper was eager to return to hard news, however, and was hired by CNN in January of 2002 as a correspondent and substitute anchor.
