NBC 5 CELEBRATES ‘NEW YEAR’S EVE CHICAGO’ WITH SPECIAL CELEBRITY GUESTS

CHICAGO, IL – (December 18, 2020) NBC 5 Chicago rings in the New Year with a special presentation, ‘New Year’s Eve Chicago,’ hosted by Matthew Rodrigues and Cortney Hall of ‘Chicago Today.’ The celebration takes place with Chicago as the backdrop from the LondonHouse Chicago rooftop.

To help kick off 2021, several celebrity guests stop by, including Carson Kressley and ‘This Is Us’ star Chrissy Metz, who gives us a special musical performance. We also look at how Chicagoans stepped up for each other and for our communities throughout the past year.

Plus, it wouldn’t be New Year’s without a few fun games, so we brought in local frontline workers to test their Chicago trivia knowledge. Join NBC Chicago to countdown to the New Year with an uplifting performance from the Chicago Children’s Choir.

The show will be broadcast on December 31st 11:30pm and can be streamed on NBCChicago.com, the NBC Chicago app or through the Roku ‘NBC 5 Chicago’ Channel.
