Andy Cohen will join Anderson Cooper as co-host of CNN’s New Year’s Eve special. He replaces Kathy Griffin who was fired following her controversial Trump severed head photo shoot.
“Andy is the life of the party wherever he goes, and what bigger party is there than New Year’s Eve?” Cooper said in a statement. “It’s going to be a blast.”
Cohen also released a statement saying, “I’ve been friends with Anderson for 25 years. We’ve traveled the world together and performed in 30-plus cities with ‘AC2’ and it’s all led to this one huge night.”
The newly branded special, which airs on Dec. 31, will be titled “New Year’s Eve Live with Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen.”
