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.

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.
