I uncontrollably weep over the loss of this mass of steel. It was a great site and a good tower that was now between DMAs and now in the digital world, in the wrong direction, which had been its strong suit when it was built.

Its only draw back was it was a 2000 footer (built in the early 60's) with no elevator and it was painted, not strobed.

Sometimes the liability outweighs the profitability.

Looked like a Stainless G7 tower. Those were some very well made towers.

I think it was a Klein actually. I will have to see if I can find out.
