Anderson Cooper was born in Manhattan, New York City. His father, Wyatt Emory Cooper, was a writer, and his mother, Gloria Vanderbilt, was a fashion designer.

On Sept. 08, 2003, Cooper became an anchor at Anderson Cooper 360° on CNN.

In 2016, Cooper renewed his contract with the channel and said that he doesn’t foresee leaving CNN. "Anything I do would be an add-on," he was quoted as saying in a statement from May 2016.

On May 12, 2020, he appeared on Howard Stern’s radio show, where while talking about his time at CNN and his future prospects, he said, “I don’t know that anyone wants a contract to be up during a global pandemic, by the way. I got a couple of years. I’m very happy. I’m very lucky.”

However, there is no proof or any media rumors that Cooper is planning to leave CNN. Therefore, the claim is not true.
