Some people go to a ball on New Year’s Eve. I’m fortunate that the ball comes to me. For the second year, I was privileged to emcee the year-end countdown in Knoxville’s Market Square.
Whitney Good of WATE-TV interviewed me on the 10:00 p.m. newscast that airs on the CW-20. I showed a New Year’s resolution form that revelers could fill out in the WNOX broadcast booth. Pictures of them holding the forms were posted to the radio station’s Facebook page.
At two minutes before midnight, Russell from Pyro Shows illuminated the ball. It began descending at 11:59.
