Sabotage Suspected In Georgia Tower Collapse
February 1, 2010 at 4:30 AM (PT)
The tower of GEORGIA-CAROLINA RADIO BROADCASTING AC-Classic Country WLHR (LAKE HARTWELL RADIO)/LAVONIA, GA was toppled early SATURDAY night, taking the station off the air.
While the area was under a winter storm warning at the time of the collapse, co-owner ART SUTTON told the station's ACCESSNORTHGA.COM website that he believes one of the guy wires was deliberately cut, based on the way the 284-foot tower collapsed.
The station is streaming its programming on the Internet while repairs are made.
