CNN anchor Anderson Cooper speaks at Mayo Performing Arts Center on September 16 at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $59-$150.

Anderson Cooper anchors http://www.cnn.com/CNN/Programs/anderson.cooper.360/, a provocative alternative on CNN each weekday to the typical network evening newscast, going beyond the headlines to tell stories in-depth and from multiple points of view. Cooper, who joined CNN in December 2001, served as CNN's weekend anchor before moving to prime time in March 2003 following the war in Iraq and then to a two-hour, late evening timeslot in November 2005 following Hurricane Katrina.

Since the launch of Anderson Cooper 360°, Cooper has covered nearly all of the major news events around the world. Often reporting from the scene, he spent more than a month along the U.S. Gulf Coast covering the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and has returned more than 20 times to follow the reconstruction progress. Cooper has reported multiple times from Afghanistan and Iraq, including several anniversaries of the Sept. 11 attacks and the Iraqi elections. Cooper also covered the ongoing violence in Mexico, the bombings in London and the Israeli-Hezbollah conflict. He also anchored much of CNN's live coverage of the funeral of Pope John Paul II in the Vatican City in 2005 and traveled to Sri Lanka to cover the tsunami in 2004.

During most of 2007 and 2008, Cooper traveled around the world for Planet in Peril, a high definition documentary about issues threatening the planet, its inhabitants and its natural resources.

Cooper also has played a pivotal role as part of the "Best Political Team on Television" for CNN's America Votes 2008 coverage, reporting and anchoring coverage from both the Democratic and Republican national conventions. In 2007, Cooper moderated the groundbreaking CNN/YouTube debates for Democratic presidential candidates from The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, and for Republican presidential candidates in St. Petersburg, Florida, and, in 2008, moderated a Republican debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California.

In addition to reporting for CNN, Cooper also provides reports for CBS's 60 Minutes. Dispatches from the Edge, Cooper's memoirs about covering the South Asia tsunami, Hurricane Katrina and other news events, recently topped the New York Times best-seller list and other best-seller charts.
