New Year's Eve 2019 Ball Drop

New York City police officers stand near revelers gathered on Times Square in New York

Nothing in our profession is done alone, however, and our members work hand-in-hand with our law-enforcement partners - including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the New York State Police, the MTA Police, and many others - all throughout the year in preparation. "There's something magical about NY during this time of year". There will also be performances from The Lab, Bebe Rexha and the lovelytheband and the USO Show Troupe. Weighing 11,875 pounds (5,386 kg) and measuring 12 feet (3.7 meters) in diameter, it sits year-round on the roof of One Times Square, the one-time headquarters of the New York Times. They are employed to help with search-and-rescue missions, as well as documenting crime scenes and - as with New Year's Eve - monitoring large events. A special NYE Webcast will go live at 5 p.m. EST on Monday. This year's event will once again be hosted by television personality Steve Harvey; actress and journalist Maria Menounos will co-host. ABC correspondent Martha Raddatz, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt, CNN New Day host Alisyn Camerota, and Fox News anchor Jon Scott are among those TV news personalities who will participate.

How to livestream: Fox's app will have a livestream option that's included in your cable subscription.

Tim Tompkins, president of Times Square Alliance, which organizes the annual ball drop, said: "We are honored to have such a respected group of media entities and journalists join us to #CelebratePressFreedom as we ring in the New Year". USA Today is broadcasting events from the around the world. All told, you won't be hurting for choice if you want something to watch when the clock strikes midnight. Playbill.com shared that Cooper and Cohen will be checking in with multiple Broadway show casts throughout the night, including "The Band's Visit", "Pretty Woman", "Tootsie" and more. It's the first time a drone has been used this way during the festivities.
