WRAL-TV Anchor/Reporter Bill Leslie composed an original song for the 2017 WRAL tower lighting.

The towers at both the WRAL-TV studios and American Tobacco Campus are now aglow for the holidays.  On Friday, December 1, 2017, Capitol Broadcasting celebrated the start of the season with special ceremonies at both locations.
