Puerto Rico to host show’s 1st Dec. 31 Spanish countdown


SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — A Spanish-language countdown will be included for the first time in the “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest” show this year. Puerto Rico Gov. Pedro Pierluisi announced Thursday that the segment will be broadcast from the U.S. territory, where thousands are expected to gather at the island’s main convention center in the capital of San Juan. The countdown will occur an hour ahead of the one in New York because Puerto Rico does not implement daylight saving time. The ABC special is broadcast from Times Square in New York City. It is the show’s 50th anniversary.
