The premiere episode of Anderson Cooper‘s new talk show will welcome Amy Winehouse‘s family and boyfriend in their first interview since her death, RadarOnline.com has learned.

The CNN host will sit down with the late singer’s parents, Mitch and Janis, brother, Alex, and boyfriend Reg Traviss, for the premiere episode of his new talk show, Anderson, which launches on September 12 and will be nationally syndicated, reported the Hollywood Reporter.

This will be the first interview with Winehouse’s family since she was found dead in her London home on July 23 at the age of 27.

Anderson has also taped an interview with the family of Russell Armstrong discussing the suicide of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star.

Mitch Winehouse announced on Tuesday that the Amy Winehouse Foundation will launch on September 14 in honor of his late daughter. “We will turn our grief into positive action,” he wrote on his Twitter page.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the charity had been delayed due to a problem with the registration because someone else had already taken the name.

“Somebody else pinched it off of us before we could get it registered. All these donations which are coming in – we don’t know what to do with them at the moment.

“We’ll have to hold off for the time being,” Mitch said last month.

The Foundation aims to help young addicts and other children in need.

“The plan is to help all children – not just rehabilitation, not just substance abuse. It’s to help all children in need,” the Back to Black singer’s dad told BBC News recently.
