Justice Sonia Sotomayor to Helm Times Square Ball Drop
The Supreme Court justice will lead the final 60-second countdown and push the ceremonial button to signal the descent of the New Year's Eve ball.
The countdown to the new year in Times Square is getting some high-profile help from U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor
The organizers of the annual celebration said Sunday that Sotomayor will lead the final 60-second countdown and push the ceremonial button to signal the descent of the Times Square New Year's Eve ball.
Sotomayor was appointed to the court in 2009. She is a native of the Bronx.
The giant New Year's Eve ball is covered in more than 2,600 crystal triangles and lit from within by more than 32,000 lights.
The ball drop will be covered live on networks such as ABC, NBC, Fox and CNN. The Hollywood Reporter also will live-stream the event.
