The holiday season officially began on Nov. 30, 2012, when WRAL-TV held its 53rd annual tower lighting.

WRAL-TV Anchor Debra Morgan and WRAL-TV Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel flipped the switch to turn the 300-foot tower into a Christmas tree during the 6pm newscast.

“The Madrigals” from Millbrook High School in Raleigh performed during the WRAL newscasts that evening to celebrate the tower lighting.

Morgan & Fishel broadcast from outside the studios as man-made snow fell all around them. WRAL-TV Anchors Gerald Owens & Jackie Hyland shared the music from inside.
