GAYLORD BROADCASTING’s WSM-A/NASHVILLE’s 808-foot broadcast tower, is quite a landmark in the NASHVILLE area. Now it will be a ‘national’ landmark, to be included in the NATIONAL REGISTER of HISTORIC PLACES.
The tower, which stands high above MUSIC CITY, from its location at 8012 Concord Rd. in BRENTWOOD, TN, was constructed by BLAW-KNOX STEEL Co., in 1932. It was officially recognized in MARCH, 2011 by the NATIONAL PARK SERVICE for the property’s “association with events that have made a significant contribution to the broad patterns of our history” and its “distinctive characteristics of a type, period or method of construction.”
“WSM is extremely proud to be included in the NATIONAL REGISTER of HISTORIC PLACES,” said WSM OM/PD JOE LIMARDI.
