After last year’s dominant ratings, CNN announced to no one’s surprise that Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen would return to co-host the cable news outlet’s New Years Eve coverage, New Year’s Eve Live.
Cooper and Cohen will host from 8 PM until 12:30 AM. At 12:30, Brooke Baldwin and Don Lemon will return to New Orleans to ring in the new year with the Central Time Zone until 1:05 AM ET.
Cooper said in a statement, “Getting to ring in the New Year with Andy is a total joy and I can’t wait for the big night!”
“Who would’ve thought 25 years of friendship would lead to an almost-tradition of co-hosting New Year’s Eve on CNN!?” said Cohen. “I’m so excited to spend New Year’s with my friend again and promise not to complain about the bitter cold!”
