  • 9/2/2003: 3 of the station's 4 towers were torn down to make way for a residential subdivision. The 4th tower was scheduled to come down in March 2004 after the station received approval from the FCC for new facilities further west in Genesee County. Until then, the station operated with special temporary authority from the FCC from its now-modified single tower site. The 4 tower array for AM 600 was put in place in 1946.
