Mt. Wilson Broadcast Landmark on the Market

One of America’s most historic and iconic broadcasting landmarks is for sale.

The Poole Tower Complex on Mt. Wilson, high above Los Angeles, is expected to fetch between $5 million and $10 million.

“This is beachfront property in the world of tower sites,” said Robert Heymann Jr., spokesman for Media Services Group, which has been retained by Poole Properties Inc. to explore a sale.

Rising almost 6,000 feet above sea level, the complex was developed in the 1950s by the late legendary L.A. broadcaster John H. Poole and has been a tower site of choice for TV and radio stations serving the L.A. market ever since.

Among the current tenants are iHeartMedia’s KBIG-FM (104.3), KWHY-TV (Channel 22) and KXOS-FM (93.9). Broadcasters pay tower owners to send their signals from the Mount Wilson site.
