Yule log fire returns to television for the holidays
The original burning log was dreamed up by Fred M. Thrower, President and CEO of WPIX, Inc., a New York City television station. Rather than airing the scheduled roller derby game, Thrower opted to give his employees a night off, filling airtime instead with a loop of the Mayor's burning fireplace.
The tradition will be carried on this holiday season KSTC, channel 45.1. Starting Christmas Eve at 7 p.m. The fire will rage on until 7 p.m. Christmas day, ending with a festive airing of Renee Zellweger's E! True Hollywood Story.
