Welcome to 2009, Proceed with Caution

We’re just back from Times Square where we got access to the media platform in Duffy Square. On one end: Anderson Cooper and Kathy Grffin on live for CNN. On the other end: FNC’s Megyn Kelly and Bill Hemmer anchoring UParty 2009. In between, seven or eight other live positions for local stations and affiliate feed service correspondents.

Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin about 20 minutes to midnight.

Bill Hemmer and Megyn Kelly minutes after the ball dropped in Times Square.

And since we were on the platform, we didn’t hear or see any of the programs… but we’ve heard from some of you who did watch. More on that, plus more pictures tomorrow, including something not seen publicly since 1997.

For now, Happy New Year from TVNewser! Especially to all you hard-working newsies working tonight and throughout the holiday weekend.
