"I'm so thrilled Anderson Cooper has agreed to be my assistant once again as I single-handedly host New Year's Eve on CNN for my global adoring audience," Griffin said in a statement.
"Wait...what? CNN hired her again? For real?" said Cooper in his own statement.
This will be the seventh year in a row the pair will host the festivities. Isha Sesay will also help out Cooper and Griffin in Times Square, while Brooke Baldwin will report from New Orleans, Susan Hendricks from Nashville and Gary Tuchman from the Watermelon Drop in Vincennes, Ind.
