Network to Partner with First Responders Children’s Foundation
NEW YORK – November 19, 2023 — FOX News Media will present its fourth annual “All-American Christmas Tree Lighting” on Monday, November 20 at 5 PM/ET partnering with the First Responders Children’s Foundation. Taking place on FOX Square outside the network’s New York City headquarters, the event will air live on FOX News Channel (FNC) during the last half hour of The Five and the tree will be lit by co-hosts Harold Ford Jr., Greg Gutfeld, Dana Perino, Judge Jeanine Pirro and Jesse Watters.
FOX’s All-American Christmas tree stands at 50 feet tall and will be decorated with 12,000 ornaments and 340,000 lights. The tree has 500 branches, a star topper that is over six feet tall, and more than four miles of cord wrapped throughout. Made by the iconic holiday lighting and display company American Christmas in Mt. Vernon, NY, the tree will feature a patriotic theme of red, white, and blue decorations.
Kicking off with holiday carolers, the co-hosts will be joined by special guests throughout the hour as they discuss the upcoming holiday season, the importance of giving back, and some of their favorite holiday memories in front of a live audience while Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Rabbi Haskel Lookstein and Rev. Jacques De Graff bestow a blessing of the tree. FOX News Media will also welcome members of the FDNY and NYPD from stations and precincts around New York City to attend the tree lighting ceremony.
This year, FOX News Media is partnering with the First Responders Children’s Foundation (1STRCF), which provides financial support to children who have lost a parent in the line of duty, as well as families enduring significant financial hardships due to tragic circumstances. Earlier this month, FNM set up an internal toy drive for employees to donate gifts which will then be wrapped and placed under the tree by the night of the lighting.
FOX News Media operates the FOX News Channel (FNC), FOX Business Network (FBN), FOX News Digital, FOX News Audio, FOX News Books, the direct-to-consumer streaming services FOX Nation and FOX News International and the free ad-supported television service FOX Weather. Currently the number one network in all of cable, FNC has also been the most watched television news channel for more than 21 consecutive years, while FBN is the top business channel on cable.
