    What’s a New Year’s Eve without parties, music, a countdown and even some fireworks to finish it off?

    Along with being broadcast on NBC 5 and Nexstar stations across Texas, Lousiana, Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri, an extended program will be streamed live on NBCDFW.com and 18 local Nexstar websites starting at 10 p.m.

    "We are extremely excited to collaborate with NBC 5 to host the 2018 New Year’s Eve television special and second annual AT&T Streaming Lights fireworks spectacular, live from Dallas— one of America’s greatest cities and home of the Nexstar Nation for over two decades," said Tim Busch, President of Nexstar Broadcasting Inc. "As one of the country’s largest broadcast television groups, Nexstar is expanding this must-see event to reach 18 additional markets across the country, bringing the live Dallas celebration into the homes of thousands of new viewers."

NBC 5 news anchors Kristen Dickerson and Kris Gutierrez will host from the party alongside former NFL player and KARK Little Rock news anchor D.J. Williams.

    Checking in regularly with the team at Saint Rocco’s will be meteorologist David Yeomans of KXAN in Austin with live reports from Reunion Tower where crews will be making final preparation for fireworks show.  

    NBC 5 and Nexstar Media Group are the official media partners of the AT&T Streaming Lights at Reunion Tower fireworks spectacular and will broadcast the event live beginning at 11:59 p.m. CST as the Dallas city skyline lights up with more than 4,000 pyrotechnic special effects ignited from various levels of Reunion Tower.
