Anchors Don Lemon and Brooke Baldwin will be returning to New Orleans as part of CNN’s New Year’s Eve broadcast, which Anderson Cooper and his new co-host Andy Cohen will front the main part of.
“[Lemon and I] are indeed heading back to NOLA,” Baldwin said.
Last year, Lemon ended the broadcast with a freshly pierced ear, and lots and lots of tequila. It got so intense last year that a media blog reported he had been suspended by CNN management for his “antics,” though it turned out to not be true.
Lemon was reportedly “devastated” he wasn’t selected as Cooper’s main co-host and was relegated to just co-hosting the later part of the broadcast alongside Baldwin.
