In 1999, Cooper became the co-anchor on ABC’s World News Now program. He eventually moved on to host the reality show The Mole in 2000, but returned to news in 2001. In 2003, he scored his own show on CNN, Anderson Cooper 360°, which he has hosted for 17 years. 

In 2012, Cooper came out as gay, and he has since become one of the most visible gay men in media. 

“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,” Cooper wrote in an open letter to his longtime friend Andrew Sullivan of The Daily Beast.
