No Shortage of Yule Log: WPIX and WLNY Light the Holiday Tradition

Christmas is drawing near, and so is the holiday staple, the Yule Log.

WPIX/Channel 11 resumes the famed fireplace with the Christmas soundtrack. WPIX first aired Yule Log in 1966. The 2012 edition will be shown on December 25 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Not to be outdone, WLNY/TV 10 55 is offering its own version of Yule Log Christmas Eve.

WLNY will bring the updated look to the holiday standard with John Elliott, Carolina Bermudez, and Lisa Kerney, hosts of Live from the Couch, and WLNY News at 9 anchors Chris Wragge and Dana Tyler.  The WLNY talent will be flanked by Jim Douglas and Kim Berk, the Fresh 102.7/WWFS morning team.

WLNY’s Yule Log will be accompanied by a simulcast of music on Fresh.

It airs December 24 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., then after the news it returns from 10 p.m. until midnight. Viewers can get another helping of ‘LNY’s Yule Log from 7 to 9 Christmas morning.
