Anderson Cooper, CNN anchor and Emmy winner, will bring his “Anderson Cooper’s 360° World View” to DPAC, Durham Performing Arts Center, this fall on Friday, September 21, 2012.
“Anderson Cooper’s 360° World View” is based on CNN’s program Anderson Cooper 360°. This fast-paced and provocative news show is an alternative to typical network newscasts. Cooper goes behind the headlines to tell in-depth stories of the day and gather analysis from experts. He will bring this format to DPAC as a 45-minute lecture followed by a 45-minute Q&A session that will take place with members of the audience being able to ask Cooper questions about his stories and travels.
Since the launch of Anderson Cooper 360°, Cooper has covered nearly all major news events around the world and often reports from the scene. In addition to reporting for CNN, Cooper has launched a new talk show, Anderson, a topical issue/event-driven talk show. 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 Bestsellers List and other bestseller charts.
"Fans love special events like this at DPAC as past speakers like David Sedaris, Garrison Keillor, Bill O'Reilly, Ira Glass and Anthony Bourdain have been some of our most talked about presentations since opening. To have an international news figure on our stage brings a whole new dimension to the theater. And as always, our state-of-the-art sound, video and sightlines will ensure guests an intimate experience unmatched by any other theater in the region,” said Bob Klaus, GM for DPAC.
