Something that’s been a part of the
north side of the City of Platteville
for over 50-years is gone.
The two towers for the transmitter
for WPVL-AM Radio…the former
WSWW-AM…were taken down today (Tuesday).
Brandon Naylor is with Tower Technologies,
the company that took them down.
He says the cold, Winter winds from
the northwest at 15-miles an hour
actually helped the process.
So what will become of the towers ???
One tower has been at the former
site of the radio station since 1958,
the other since 1961. They’ve been
replaced by two new towers for
WPVL-AM. Both are just under
200-feet in height and located at
the station’s new transmitter site.
That’s north of Platteville on the
Old Lancaster Road.
