Accident topples WNBY-FM/AM tower




A freak accident on Monday afternoon took down a 282-foot tower and temporarily left WNBY voiceless. But it could have been much worse. According to Michigan State Police reports, a 55-year-old Chelsea man was turning around in the WNBY parking lot when his snowmobile trailer caught a guy wire stabilizing the large steel structure. “It got the tower rocking, and it collapsed on the radio station,” confirmed a spokesman for the post.

The occupants of the vehicle which upset the tower likewise escaped unscathed... Accident knocks down Newberry radio tower down (Soo Evening News, Wed 2/15)
