Anderson Cooper took his background in war correspondence for Channel One News and ABC to CNN in 2001, where he reported on major breaking news stories and handled live coverage for the military conflict in Baghdad. His show, Anderson Cooper 360°, has aired on CNN since 2003. Cooper has earned many accolades throughout his career, including several Emmys, a Peabody, and two GLAAD Media awards.


The Maverick Speakers Series appearance of CNN anchor Anderson Cooper was rescheduled to February 10 from the original date of November 11, 2013. Cooper's appearance on November 11 was postponed due to the journalist being assigned to report on the massive destruction in the Philippines caused by Typhoon Haiyan.
