Tonight at 11pmET on CNN, for the Anderson Cooper 360 special highlighting this year’s Time 100 list.
“These people are really good friends. They know a lot about each other on levels that reporter may not know about,” AC 360 EP David Doss tells TVNewser. “It’s really like we’re all approved to eavesdrop on these cool conversations.”
Besides the pre-taped conversations, Cooper will contribute to the special as well. “Anderson is editorially involved with quite a lot. Two of the segments are his own,” says Doss.
Working with Time magazine, of course, keeps the special in the Time Warner family. “It would be fair to say the relationship with Time and Rick Stengel and 360 and CNN is really a great relationship,” says Doss. “We talk a lot about projects and editorially about things on the print and broadcast and digital side. It’s really fantastic.”
The special is simulcast on CNNI tonight at 11pmET, and re-airs Saturday and Sunday at 8pm and 11pmET on CNN.
