  1. Good article on the collapse of the tower for KOZK-PBS in Springfield, Missouri. I believe this tower was a Kline used by KYTV (also in Springfield) before it was donated to KOZK. According to the FCC/FAA tower registry, it was built in 1971.

    • That’s correct (and was actually mentioned in an early draft of the story that had to be cut for space.) An old tower is not automatically a bad tower – but it takes lots of attention to regular maintenance and inspections.
