Remember how glad we were last January to be well and truly done with 2016? 2017 had to be better, right? Not so much. It’s been a brutal year for natural disasters and our president seems to have an itching finger on the nuclear button. But soon it will be the holidays. And then we can ring in 2018 with Anderson Cooper! I’ll miss Kathy Griffin, but I agreed she had to be fired. But it will still be fun, right?
Wrong. Here is the press release for this year’s NYE celebration.
For the first time, Anderson Cooper will co-host CNN’s New Year’s Eve celebration with Bravo’s Watch What Happens Livewith Andy Cohen host and executive producer Andy Cohen, live from Times Square in New York City. These long-time friends, one from television news and the other from late night, will ring in the New Year on CNN’s “New Year’s Eve Live with Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen” on Sunday, December 31st.
“Andy is the life of the party wherever he goes, and what bigger party is there than New Year’s Eve? It is going to be a blast!” said Cooper.
Said Cohen, “I’ve been friends with Anderson for twenty-five years. We’ve travelled the world together and performed in 30 plus cities with “AC2″ and it’s all led to this one huge night!”
Now in its 11th year, CNN’s New Year’s Eve show is a global celebration featuring contributions from CNN correspondents across the country and around the world.
