A CBS Thanksgiving tradition in its 52nd year, the special will feature portions of the 86th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade live from New York City, as well as performances by country music superstar Martina McBride. A three-time Academy of Country Music "Top Female Vocalist" award winner, four-time Country Music Association "Female Vocalist of the Year" and GRAMMY(R)-winning recording artist, McBride has sold more than 18 million albums and garnered six #1 hits throughout her career. Currently, McBride is in the middle of a U.S. tour featuring several one-night-only, intimate theater performances in support of her latest album, Eleven.

For the second consecutive year, Broadway and country music star Laura Bell Bundy will offer an additional viewpoint of the parade as its "on-the-street" reporter during the event, as she reports and interacts with the crowd during the parade.

Frazier and Anderson will anchor from a site along the parade route in New York City. The beloved parade is famous for its gigantic balloons of cartoon character favorites, fantastic floats and lively marching bands from across the country.

Currently, Frazier and Anderson co-host the nightly, half-hour newsmagazine THE INSIDER, which is in its ninth season. This marks Frazier's second consecutive year hosting the parade, while this is Anderson's first. Previously, Frazier worked on THE INSIDER's sister show, ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT, for eight seasons as a correspondent and weekend anchor. Also, Frazier appeared as an entertainment expert on news and entertainment programs, including CBS News' "The Early Show," "The Oprah Winfrey Show," CNN's "Larry King Live" and "Nancy Grace," and HLN's "The Joy Behar Show." Previously, Anderson served as co-host of HLN's "Showbiz Tonight." Additionally, she was an entertainment correspondent, writer and producer at CNN. An award-winning journalist, Anderson was an integral part of CNN's entertainment coverage for the last decade, covering countless events, behind-the-scenes stories, exclusive interviews and breaking news for CNN, HLN and CNN International.

Emmy Award-winning producers Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss (THE TONY AWARDS) are executive producers for THE THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE ON CBS. Weiss will also direct.
