CNN anchor Anderson Cooper entered foreign territory this evening in his first appearance on Fox News’ The Kelly File, hosted by Megyn Kelly. The two are quite often timeslot competitors when AC360 is expanded to two hours.
The interview focused primarily on Cooper’s mother, Gloria Vanderbilt, and the documentary of her life, Nothing Left Unsaid, and the book the two wrote together, The Rainbow Comes and Goes. The HBO documentary will be re-airing on CNN this Friday at 9pm.
At the end of the interview, Fox’s Kelly hinted at the reports that Cooper may be a frontrunner to join his friend Kelly Ripa at her ABC-syndicated talk show, Live!
Cooper responded coyly, “No one has talked to me. I haven’t heard a thing about it. I love Kelly Ripa. Everybody knows she’s a great friend of mine… I’m very happy at CNN. I’m not going anywhere. I love CNN, and, um, look, I mean, I’m always open to new opportunities, as are you, from what I hear.”
