Anderson Cooper, who is the face, name, and mind behind Anderson Cooper 360° on CNN, pulled in 39 percent of the vote, with Tom Brokaw and Ann Curry trailing behind with 14 and 13 percent. What do readers love about Cooper? Plenty of commenters complimented his friendly face (OK, I'll admit it, they called him "sexy"), and said he comes off as a smart, nice guy.
On top of his nightly show, Cooper played a major role in CNN's America Votes 2008 coverage, reporting from both national conventions. He also provided special reports for CBS's 60 Minutes.
