News Anchor, 46
When his talk show, Anderson Live, was canceled, Cooper finally seemed to relax, showcasing a softer, funnier side of the sometimes stuffy news anchor. Even though he’s primarily focused on breaking news on the Emmy-winning Anderson Cooper 360, networks took notice. Last year, he was reportedly approached about anchoring the Today show, and Jeopardy! considered him as a replacement for Alex Trebek. Until he makes his next move, he’ll continue reporting from the frontlines.
