WRAL Tradition Transforms TV Tower Into Tree

Posted December 2, 2002

— A WRAL-TV holiday tradition continues as the station's 300-foot TV tower was transformed into a 300-foot Christmas tree.

The tradition started more than 40 years ago, with 2,890 colored lights on the tower that keep it glowing throughout the holiday season. Three 5-foot stars adorn the top.

Our lit tower has won a community appearance award from the Citizen's Advisory Council of Raleigh, and raves from passers-by.

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