When digging around in the ATA archives we came across an interview Anderson did with Larry King at the time his book, Dispatches From the Edge, A Memoir of War, Disasters, and Survival, was released. The interview aired on June 1, 2006. Over the next seven days we'll be posting a segment from the interview. Enjoy!
LARRY KING, CNN HOST: Tonight, a journey from private heartbreak to the front lines of the news with CNN's Anderson Cooper. He grew up among what some would call American royalty but two tragedies changed his life forever. His father's untimely death when Anderson was only ten and his brother's suicide witnessed by his famous mom, Gloria Vanderbilt. Anderson Cooper shares memories and family secrets and more in an emotional hour next on LARRY KING LIVE. A great pleasure to welcome to LARRY KING LIVE, Anderson Cooper, the host of AC's 360, the program that airs following this one each night, the author of the book "Dispatches From the Edge, a Memoir of War, Disasters, and Survival" and we're told it's already number one on Amazon, why now? Why a book now? And so the interview begins ~
