Before Bourdain died, CNN had planned to run a marathon of past "Parts Unknown" episodes on Saturday night.

Cooper dedicated his entire broadcast of "Anderson Cooper 360" to Bourdain, who he said was "one of this countries storytellers".

"He taught us about food - but more importantly, about its ability to bring us together".

Following official confirmation of Bourdain's death from his employer, CNN, Argento took to Twitter on Friday to pay tribute.

Bourdain´s sudden death drew tributes from around the world - from current and former United States presidents to celebrated chefs to ordinary people who learned from his programs. "His brilliant, fearless spirit touched and inspired so many, and his generosity knew no bounds".

Rachel Yang, co-owner of the Relay Restaurant Group, which includes Joule, Revel, and Trove, wrote, "Anthony Bourdain gave cooks a voice". Bourdain grew to fame while working at Brasserie Les Halles in New York City. "I am beyond devastated". Bourdain quickly became one of the principal faces of the network and one of the linchpins of the prime time schedule. The eleventh season of his show Parts Unknown debuted on CNN last month.

"The best thing about Bourdain was that he loves the food, but loves the people behind it even more", Najmi told TIME Friday.

"I mean, you never know what goes on in anybody's head, you never really know what goes on in anybody's heart", continued Cooper, whose brother Carter died by suicide at age 23 in 1988.
