First question of the day for 2015

Our very last question for 2014 asked: Which will be the very first inhabited place to experience or ring in the New Year today (as with every year)? What is this place commonly called? Traditionally, the answer has been Kiritimati or "Christmas Island" off the coast of Australia, but the case has also been made for Gisborne, New Zealand and Apia, Samoa

Congratulations to Ken Walker of the Tampa Bay Times for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions also go out to JulianaJeanne KirkEdward TennerMarilyn ParelHollywood Highlands@.l.interpretations (who added the clever hashtag #LandHo!Ho!Ho!), Anna Li, and Rachel Roh!

As for today's question (our first for 2015!), here it is: ​In keeping with the theme, the tradition of the first official Times Square New Year's celebration started in what year? And what landmark in journalism history were they also celebrating that year?
