WRAL-TV Tower Lighting A WRAL-TV holiday tradition continues this year as the station’s 300-foot TV tower is transformed into a 300-foot Christmas tree at 7:30pm Monday, Dec. 3, 2008.

Located at the WRAL-TV Studios at 2619 Western Boulevard in Raleigh, the lighted tower can be seen for miles through New Year’s Day.

Three 5-foot stars adorn the top of the tower and 2,805 colored lights keep it glowing throughout the holiday season.

The “Celebrate the Season” program will begin at 7:30pm on WRAL-TV, and culminate with the flipping of the switch on the tower lights.
