He’s the man behind popular reality shows such as the “Real Housewives” franchise, “Project Runway,” “Top Chef,” “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy,” the “Million Dollar Listing” franchise, “Flipping Out,” and “Shahs of Sunset.” He won an Emmy for season six of “Top Chef” and Peabody Awards as executive producer of the documentary “The N Word” and “Project Runway.” Cohen previously ran original programming and development for TRIO, beginning in July 2000. Prior to that, he was a producer at CBS News’ “CBS This Morning” and “48 Hours” from 1990-2000.

In Fall 2015, his SiriumXM channel, Radio Andy, hit air ayes. He has written the books “Most Talkative: Stories from the Frontlines of Pop Culture,” “The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look At a Shallow Year,” and “Superficial: More Adventures from the Andy Cohen Diaries” and hosts the revival of the dating show “Love Connection” on FOX.
