DICK CLARK’S NEW YEAR’S EVE 2018-2019 HOSTS: Ryan Seacrest is the main host of the show, live from Times Square, and Jenny McCarthy has been his co-host in the crowd for years. Seacrest’s co-host on the west coast is Ciara, who is also set to perform this year. For the third year in a row, Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale will report as the New Orleans correspondent.

Recently, Hale spoke with Parade about the annual hosting gig and dished on what makes her return each year. Hale said, “The first year I went, I was so nervous, but everyone involved with the show just made me feel super comfortable, and I love New Orleans. I love to go there anytime, but there’s something really special about being there during New Year’s. There’s a lot of good energy, good people, everyone’s there to have a good time.” She continued, “I love the thrill of not knowing what’s going to happen. Because I’m an actress, I’m used to rehearsing, and getting a million takes to make things right. But, obviously, with live TV it’s a little different, so you can prepare, but things always change last minute, and it’s actually a really exciting feeling, so I’m excited to see what happens this year.”
