How to Watch New Year’s Eve 2018 TV Coverage Online

Times Square crowd braves rain to bid wet welcome to 2019

Times Square crowd braves rain to bid wet welcome to 2019

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio stated recently that as many as two million visitors are expected to visit Times Square for the New Year's Eve ceremony. For 2019, the ball is made up of over 2,500 Waterford crystal triangles, cut to resemble butterflies, small rosette cuts, starbursts, diamond cuts and intricate wedge cuts.

For those who won't be in Times Square for the New Year, they can watch the live stream on CNN's homepage here.

The Times Square Alliance, which runs the ball drop, says the estimates come from the New York City Police Department.

Executive Director Joel Simon, who will also join reporters on the stage, expressed his praise for their work and the values upon which they've staked their careers.




There may be only one Times Square in the whole world, but New Year's Eve revelers have a variety of networks and hosts to watch the ringing in of the New Year.

One was the killing of Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi columnist for the Washington Post and United States resident, inside a Saudi Arabian Consulate in Turkey.

"Throughout the year it's been a big issue", Tompkins said in an interview. As is tradition, Anderson Cooper will report on all the festivities happening in Times Square - alongside reality TV fixture Andy Cohen - while Don Lemon and Brooke Baldwin will follow the celebratory debaucheries going on in New Orleans.

The button-pressing honor has in previous years gone to United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, an Iraq War veteran, US Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor and singer Lady Gaga.
