January 13, 2011 at 6:35 AM (PT)
The GAYLORD Country WSM-A/NASHVILLE radio tower, which sits on Concord Road in BRENTWOOD, TN, will be considered for addition to the NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES. The tower was created in 1925 with help from then-WSM engineer JACK DeWITT. After World War II, DeWITT became the President of WSM and helped create WSMV-TV (NBC, Channel 4)/NASHVILLE. The tower first broadcast the GRAND OLE OPRY in 1932.
A state review board will examine the tower and at least half a dozen other nominations on JANUARY 19th at 9a (CT) 9 at the TENNESSEE HISTORICAL COMMISSION offices in NASHVILLE.
