FOX News Channel will present a special New Year’s Eve program, “All American New Year,” on December 31, 2011 from 11 p.m. – 12:30 a.m.

Hosts Megyn Kelly and Bill Hemmer will ring in 2012 live from Times Square in New York City, featuring contributions from FNC’s Greg Gutfeld, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Rick Leventhal, and Maria Molina.

The live program will include exclusive performances from country music stars Big & Rich, Trace Adkins, and the cast of the Tony Award-nominated "Rock of Ages."

Viewers will be encouraged to participate in the program by texting special holiday messages which will appear on a screen ticker throughout the entire show. Try to keep those messages apolitical.
