KFI getting new tower


KFI-AM LA has The City of La Mirada, CA’s approval to build a 684-foot antenna to replace the one that was knocked to the ground by an airplane about three years ago. It’s expected to be done this summer. But KFI still may have one more obstacle–a potential lawsuit from the city of Fullerton, which opposes construction because the rebuilt tower would only be about 1.75 miles away from its airport. The FAA in December ruled that the tower isn’t a hazard. With the current 204-foot-high antenna, KFI’s signal only reaches 11 million listeners in contrast to the 16 million it can reach with the proposed new 684-ft tower, according to KFI.
