It’s getting shorter… crews are back to work, taking down the tower

CHEROKEE COUNTY, Kan. – Crews are back this week, taking down some more of KOAM’s 500-foot tower.

Digital Content Manager Stacie Strader took some video of the crew coming down (that’s me!). It reminded me of the color video we found from 1953. There’s a bit of a difference from the sights you would see in 1953 when the 500-foot tower went up.

After the small tower is down, the 1,000-foot one will get new antennas to bring a better signal to 4-state residents. You can learn more about the KOAM News Now More Power project here.

You can also check out a Livestream of the two towers, which also gives you an option of playing a time-lapse.
