Host & Executive Producer, Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live"

Andy Cohen is an Emmy Award-winning host, producer, TV personality, and author best known as the host and executive producer of "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen," Bravo’s late night, interactive talk show.

Cohen has been the executive producer of hugely successful franchises and series such as "Real Housewives," "Top Chef," and "Project Runway," among many others. He is also a regular on "Today" and "Morning Joe" and has appeared as himself on a number of television series.

"Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen" is the only live show in Late Night television, and features everyone from “Bravolebrities” to big names in pop culture, including Oprah Winfrey, Cher, Lady Gaga, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lopez, Will Ferrell, and Mariah Carey. In 2014, Details Magazine called the show “compulsively engrossing,” while touting Cohen as “possibly the smartest man on TV;” GQ describes "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen" as “the most primitively authentic thing on television” and TV Guide thinks it’s late night’s “unlikeliest success story.”

Cohen continues to serve as executive producer of "The Real Housewives" franchise and hosts the network’s highly-rated reunion specials. He is the New York Times bestselling author of "The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look At a Shallow Year" and "Most Talkative: Stories from the Frontlines of Pop Culture." His most recent book, "Superficial: More Adventures from the Andy Cohen Diaries," was published in November 2016.

Cohen started at Bravo in 2004 as Vice President, Original Programming and most recently, served as Bravo’s Executive Vice President of Development and Talent from November 2011 to January 2014.

Cohen received an Emmy Award when season six of "Top Chef" won Outstanding Reality Competition Program at the 2010 Primetime Emmy Awards and has been nominated for 17 additional Emmy Awards as Executive Producer of "Project Greenlight," "Project Runway," "Top Chef," and "Queer Eye." In 2005, Cohen was awarded a Peabody Award for his role as Executive Producer of the TRIO documentary "The N Word" and another in 2008 as an Executive Producer of "Project Runway." He spent ten years (1990-2000) as a producer at CBS News, working on "CBS This Morning" and "48 Hours."

In 2011 and 2012, he hosted the “Miss USA” and “Miss Universe” pageants live on NBC. In June of 2013 he was named to Fast Company’s "100 Most Creative People in Business" List. In December of 2012, GQ Magazine named Cohen one of the "25 Best Dressed Men of the Year." And in 2010, he was listed as one of TV Guide’s “25 Most Influential People in Television.” Cohen has interviewed Lady Gaga for Glamour Magazine, Rihanna live on Facebook, Jerry Seinfeld on AOL.com and Martha Stewart at the 92nd St Y.
