CNN bid adieu to comedian Kathy Griffin, who had co-hosted the network's New Year's Eve celebration since 2007, earlier this year, and her replacement has now been named.

Griffin, who had co-hosted New Year's Eve with Cooper since 2007, was sacked from the gig in May after her controversial photo shoot in which she posed with a bloodied replica of President Donald Trump's head.

"I've been friends with Anderson for 25 years", Cohen added. Cooper said in a statement. "We've travelled the world together and performed in 30 plus cities with "AC2" and it's all led to this one huge night!" Griffin apologized and said she "went too far".

CNN terminated its agreement with Griffin in May days after she appeared in a controversial photo shoot that included a photo of her holding a depiction of President Donald Trump's bloodied head. "It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate". She said in August in an interview with The Cut that her friendship with Cooper was over.
