Anderson Cooper: Conducting ’60 Minutes’ Interviews ‘Very Different’ Than Interviews for CNN

CNN anchor and CBS “60 Minutes” contributor Anderson Cooper is the subject of this week’s “Correspondent Candid” on 60MinutesOvertime.com.

Cooper is described as having the widest range of all the correspondents for the long-running program, able to juggle anything from stories about the “Afghan police to Lady Gaga.”

Cooper says, among other things, that conducting an interview for “60 Minutes” is very different than conducting interviews for his nightly CNN program.

“With a 60 minutes interview you are looking to create moments, particularly with a celebrity interview, you want to create authentic moments that are unpredicted and unpredictable and give a peek at what that person is really like.”
