WPHT Gets Town Approval For Second Tower At Transmitter Site
February 19, 2014 at 4:42 AM (PT)
CBS RADIO has won approval from the zoning board of MOORESTOWN, NJ for a new 199-foot tower next to the existing tower of Talk WPHT-A/PHILADELPHIA, reports CINNAMINSON PATCH. The MOORESTOWN Zoning Board of Adjustment voted 7-0 TUESDAY night to approve variances for the 199-foot tower, which had drawn some opposition from area residents complaining about interference and lack of notice of the proposal.
The approval stipulates that the two towers cannot be used simultaneously and that CBS will not allow other companies to use the tower, which CBS plans to use as a backup for WPHT. The public will still have a chance to contest the approval in a 45-day comment window after the board finalizes the variance vote on MARCH 18th.
