WGRB Tv Tower, still county's tallest, at Cane Valley, KY

2013-10-10 - Cane Valley, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener.
WGRB's 1,100-plus tower atop television hill in Cane Valley, Adair County, KY
, is impressive. It's over twice the height of the next two tallest structures, the radio towers of WDCL, Radio Purdy (popularly and ignorantly called a Somerset station) and of the Mighty Big Dog, (popularly and benevolently termed Campbellsville) on the nar's at Purdy, KY, which are both about 500 feet tall. The tower is no longer used for Tv broadcast, but in it's day, it was a big part of South Central Kentucky life. Mark Hale chronicled the station's life in Short history of WGRB, by Mark Hale
