SPANISH FORT, Ala. (WKRG) — The old WKRG broadcast tower outside Mobile, Alabama stood 1,000 feet until crews brought it down Monday in a controlled demolition. The tower was built in 1957.
The old tower stood next to a newer, 1,800-foot tower at the same site east of Highway 181, near Highway 31 and Jessie Rd.
The demolition was successful. Crews report that everything went as planned, with no damage done to nearby structures.
