Facts

  • The tower was originally constructed by WJIM-TV for their broadcasts, at the time, in black and white. WJIM-TV (now WLNS-TV) is the second oldest television station in the State of Michigan.
  • The tower functioned as a television tower until the mid 1980's when the tower was fitted with transmitters for WJIM's broadcasts of FM and AM radio.
  • After the three chimney stacks of the Eckert Power Station in central Lansing, this is the fourth tallest structure within the municipal boundaries of the City of Lansing.
  • The actual structure consists of a five-foot tall concrete podium, a 420-foot steel tower, which is topped by a 82-foot antenna.
  • The tower, as of 2006, held three cell phone companies, repeaters, a wireless internet company, and served as one of WLNS' ENG (Electronic News Gathering) receiving sites, which allows WLNS to receive video and audio tranmissions from its mobile units.
