WTVM installs new antenna to provide a better viewing experience

Posted: Updated:
(WTVM) -

WTVM is relocating its transmission facility after more than 53 years of service.

This new antenna marks the end of an era for WTVM.

The original antenna was one the tallest structures in the world at the time of its first broadcast. That tower is now slated for demolition.

Once completed, the installation of this new antenna on an even taller tower will provide a better viewing experience.

The new antenna weighs 11,000 pounds and was hoisted up nearly 2,000 feet into the air Tuesday.
