NEW YORK -- One day after FOX News Media's All-American Christmas Tree was set fire in a malicious arson attack, a new All-American Christmas tree will rise in its place Thursday, and you can join the celebration as we re-light the tree.
The new tree will be rebuilt at the same site in FOX Square, and starting at 6 a.m. Eastern, you'll be able to watch our progress via a live stream on the FOX Weather YouTube page.
At 5 p.m. Eastern Time, join us on The Five broadcasting live from the plaza, as hosts Lawrence Jones and Abby Horancek light the new All-American Christmas tree during the show's first few minutes. They will be joined on-air by Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, Janice Dean, Mike Rowe, Pete Hegseth, Rachel Campos-Duffy, Todd Piro and Carley Shimkus.
Cardinal Dolan, our contributor Reverend Jacques DeGraff, Rabbi Joseph Potasnik, and members of the FDNY and NYPD will all be on hand for the lighting along with Christmas carolers.
As a silver lining and an act of kindness during the holiday season, both FOX News Media and Fox Corporation have made a $100,000 donation to Answer the Call, which provides financial assistance to the families of fallen service members of the FDNY and NYPD, the two agencies who responded immediately to our very own emergency.
The entire event will be streamed live on the FOX Weather Facebook page starting at 4 p.m. Eastern Time.
