Mark Giangreco and Janet Davies are set to co-host ABC-owned WLS-Channel 7's "Countdown Chicago," the No. 1-rated local station's annual TV special to ring in the new year. Joining Giangreco and Davies will be Hosea Sanders and "190 North's" Michelle Alegria and Mark Nilsson. The hour-long special, starting at 11:08 p.m. on Dec. 31, will transport viewers live to some of the city's snazziest New Year's parties, and Chicago's traditional fireworks celebration. Davies and Giangreco will anchor the show from Buddy Guy's Legends showroom. "Countdown Chicago" also will shine a spotlight on blues legend Buddy Guy himself, while reflecting on the history of the blues performer's famous bar. Mark Nilsson will be based at popular concert venue Metro, where alternative rock band "The Jesus Lizard" will pay.
