FORT WORTH-DALLAS, TX – (December 10, 2019) – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth / KXAS and Nexstar Media Group today announced the broadcast details for “Lone Star NYE Live,” a New Year’s Eve program airing December 31, 2019 from 11:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. CST, featuring Dallas’ Reunion Tower fireworks spectacular. The New Year’s Eve program will air in North Texas on NBC 5 and in an additional 11 Texas markets and in five Central time zone states including Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri.

This year’s entertainment is provided by the Vegas Stars band, performing on location at Texas Live!, the 200,000 sq. ft. sports, dining, and entertainment destination in Arlington.
