DALLAS (NEXSTAR) — The only thing bigger than Texas might be the personalities of the hosts for this year’s Lone Star NYE 2023 program from Dallas.

Before ringing in the new year with a special program on December 31 at 11:30pm CT, we want you to get to know the hosts.  We asked each of them the same four questions:

  • What’s your favorite thing about NYE? The countdown!
  • New year’s resolutions: Yes or No? Yes, but they typically don’t last long!
  • One thing people may not know about you: Favorite hobby is playing the piano.
  • Pick two words to describe your personality: Eccentric and unpredictable.

  • What’s your favorite thing about NYE? The fireworks, of course! Watching a fireworks show brings out the kid in all of us. Also, I love when a crowd busts out singing “Auld Lang Syne” even though no one really knows the words.
  • New year’s resolutions: Yes or No? YES! For the last few years I’ve resolved to cook more. I start off great by cooking black-eyed peas for good luck New Year’s Day… and then it’s all downhill from there 
  • One thing people may not know about you: Weirdly good at board games. Invite me over for game night!
  • Pick two words to describe your personality: Enthusiastic Texan – that says it all, right?

Be sure to tune in Saturday at 11:30 p.m. to see Katy and D.J. in action as they host Lone Star NYE across more than 20 television markets in six states.
