New Year's Eve
Posted 31 December 2016 - 04:20 PM
Dallas' Big D NYE is cancelled for the second year in a row, and CBS 11 is not covering Sundance Square this year.
New Orleans says they're hosting CNN and ABC for national coverage of the central time countdown. MSNBC and FOX News won't be doing anything for the central time zone.
Central time countdowns:
FOX 4: Miami (Pit Bull) - one hour delay
NBC 5: Chicago - LIVE
WFAA-8: New Orleans - LIVE
CBS 11: Not covering New Year's Eve this year.
CNN: New Orleans - LIVE
WFAA (ABC) and NBC 5 will have New York City at 11:00.

No one's covering FW? Disappointing.
I don't blame them. I can't imagine that the ratings and the advertising revenue makes the local broadcasts worth the production costs, especially without a big name sponsor. ....
Yes it is disappointing. I should think that it is newsworthy.
I also wonder why DFWInc. is not willing to be a sponsor; it is, after all, a commercial success for lots of downtown businesses.

I've never heard as much gunfire as I did last night around midnight. Went on for around an hour. Easily distinguished from fireworks. FWPD had tweeted earlier in the day about the prohibition on discharging firearms. Obviously no capability to enforce these laws.

We made it home just a few minutes after midnight (the get together we went to was a mile or so away) and this is the first time in years that we haven't heard an abundance of fireworks in our neighborhood. None, actually. Which is strange because we typically experience far more illegal fireworks on NYE than July 4th.

I did like CBS11 coverage last year in Sundance. But I hated that BigD NYE was shown over Dick Clark's in past years. But now I watch CNN NYE coverage the best. Poor Anderson Cooper lol.
Victory park is so darn boring and the layout is not something that is inviting especially on TV. Time Square coverage looks fun just to watch even from home. I hope maybe when the north end of the Convention Center is redone. Some sort of Iconic tower or spear to bookend that end of Main street. And maybe make a ball drop of our own every new year ? You can have several music venues up and down Main street like they have during the Arts festival.
I think people would love a Main Street NYE party. As ESPN said it best. They notice that there was people and activity on a normal weekday evening when they were looking for a coverage site for the Super Bowl.
