WRAL-TV Gets Set to Light Tower for Holidays
Tune in at 6pm on Thurs, Dec 1st
The WRAL-TV Tower glows for the 51st time after the lighting on Dec 1st, 2010. Join WRAL for the 2011 celebration on Thursday, Dec 1st.
WRAL will light the transmission tower outside the WRAL-TV Studios, at 2619 Western Blvd. in Raleigh, Dec. 1, 2011, in an annual, holiday tradition that dates back more than half a century. Tune in to the newsast at 6pm to see the festivities live.
The annual event transforms the station’s tower into a 300-foot Christmas tree wrapped in more than 2,800 multi-colored lights. Three 5-foot stars adorn the top of the tower, which will glow nightly through New Year’s Day.
The tower is a beacon the holiday season for many. If you would like to join us for a behind-the-scenes tour during this year’s event, follow WRAL-TV on Facebook for details.
