"Anderson Cooper 360°" (commonly shortened to either "AC-360" or "360") is a two-hour television news show on CNN, the first hour usually broadcast live, hosted by Anderson Cooper.

"360°" is broadcast from CNN's Time Warner Center studios in New York City. The program covers a number of the stories of the day, usually through live or taped news reports from the network's correspondents. The coverage can also include analysis from experts on the issues, commonly featured in or after the taped reports. The first hour of the program is simulcast live on both CNN and CNN International at 10 p.m. ET which makes the show available to people around the world. The second hour is a repeat of the first hour except for breaking news situations or select special interest stories.

Cooper often anchors the program from the site of a major news story, such as his extensive coverage from New Orleans and the Gulf Coast in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

"360°" launched on September 8, 2003, as a laid-back news/talk program running for one hour at 7 p.m. ET. During Hurrican Katrina and its aftermath, CNN executives noticed an impressive ratings boost of "NewsNight" due to Cooper's on-site reporting as well as Cooper's growing popularity. The executives decided to cancel "NewsNight" and expand "360°" to two hours in length starting November 7, 2005.

On September 13, 2007, CNN revealed that "360°" would revert back to the one-hour format, with a replay of either Lou Dobbs Tonight or the upcoming Campbell Brown program taking the 11 p.m. timeslot. Until a final decision is made, the second hour will continue to repeat the first hour's broadcast.

On September 26, 2007, "360°" began broadcasting in High Definition on CNN HD.

Frequent analysts and contributors to the show include CNN's Chief National Correspondent John King, Chief Political Correspondent Candy Crowley, Senior Political Analyst David Gergen, Senior Business Correspondent Ali Velshi, Joe Johns, David Mattingly, Randi Kaye, Gary Tuchman, Drew Griffin, and Jeff Toobin. Other contributors include radio talk show host Roland Martin, truTV's Lisa Bloom, and psychiatrist Dr. Drew Pinsky.

egments

"Keeping Them Honest" exposes possible issues of government corruption, failed promises, and other anomalies from various sectors. "The Shot" features light-hearted pictures and video clips usually sent in by viewers. "What Were They Thinking?" shows items or eventus considered to be strange and peculiar. "Beat 360" shows a picture to viewers who are invited to provide a humorous caption at AC360.com; one viewer's caption is read of the air at the end of the hour. "Giving 360" honours people who have done good deeds for their respective communities. Erica Hill often provides quick review of other news stories of the day during the "360 Bulletin" before the bottom and top of the hour.

The second hour of the program is usually a rebroadcast of most of the first hour. The second hour may go live for at least the first few minutes if breaking news develops. Occasionally an hour-long, pre-taped, in-depth report about an issue of special interest will air during the second hour.

upplements to the TV show

The show's website (at [http://ac360.com/ AC360.com] ) provides its visitors an overview of the show, what topics the next broadcast will cover, and areas to suggest content for the "Keeping them Honest," "Beat 360" "The Shot" segments. A podcast and videos of previously featured stories are also available at the website.

The website also features a blog which gives viewers an inside look into the stories Anderson Cooper and other CNN correspondents are working on for the show. Visitors can provide feedback to the blog articles. Cooper (or the replacement host when Cooper is away) and Hill do "live blogging" where they use the commercial breaks to add entries to the blog during the first hour.
