Anderson Cooper has signed a new contract with CNN guaranteeing him at least $4 million per year, the Hollywood Reporter reported today, citing no sources. Cooper receives an additional fee as a contributor to CBS's 60 Minutes. The trade publication said that CNN declined to comment directly on the report but issued a statement saying, "Anderson Cooper is an exceptional journalist, and his dedication in going after important stories wherever they occur makes him a natural fit for CNN. We look forward to more of his groundbreaking work in the years to come."
