He also serves as executive producer of The Real Housewives franchise and hosts the network's highly rated reunion specials.

Last fall, Cohen launched Radio Andy, a personally curated channel on SiriusXM focused on pop culture, celebrities, lifestyle, relationships and the dish on all topics deep and shallow. The channel is a fun, uncensored entertainment and talk destination with celebrity hosts including Cohen, who has daily and weekly shows on air.

In 2016, Cohen also launched his own book imprint Andy Cohen Books and in November became a New York Times best-selling author for a fourth time with the release of his latest book, Superficial: More Adventures from the Andy Cohen Diaries and achieved similar success with The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look At a Shallow Year as well as with the hardcover (May 2012) and the paperback (May 2013) versions of his first book, titled, Most Talkative: Stories from the Frontlines of Pop Culture.

In 2017, Cohen will be the host and executive producer of Andy Cohen's Then & Now, a new Bravo series that explores the nostalgic moments of some of the most significant years in history. Andy Cohen's Then & Now is produced by World of Wonder and Cohen's Most Talkative Productions. Also in 2017, Cohen will host the hour-long revival of the iconic relationship show Love Connection set to premiere this summer. Much like the original version, each episode will feature single men and women in search of romance.

When he isn't in the host seat, Cohen tours the country with Anderson Cooper for AC2: An Intimate Evening with Anderson Cooper & Andy Cohen where the dynamic duo discusses all topics deep and shallow in front of sold out audiences across the country.

Cohen started at Bravo in 2004 as Vice President, Original Programming and most recently, Cohen 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 For The Straight Guy. 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.

Cohen ran Original Programming and Development for the pop culture and arts cable channel TRIO, beginning in July 2000. He was responsible for developing and supervising all of TRIO's original productions including the critically acclaimed original documentaries Gay Republicans, Easy Riders/Raging Bulls, and Brilliant, But Cancelled. He spent ten years (1990-2000) as a producer at CBS News, working on CBS This Morning and 48 Hours.
