If you drive through the Farmersburg area you will only see two television broadcast towers now instead of three.

Channel 38 went on the air in April 1973 as the ABC affiliate and was assigned the call letters WIIL.

Eventually the station switched to FOX and used the call letters WBAK.

Now owned by Mission Broadcasting but operated by WTWO the station broadcasts from the channel 2 tower and uses the call letters WAWV.

The old tower just south of channel 2’s on the west side of US41 fell into disrepair was brought down.

Traffic was stopped on US41 while the demolition took place. 

It took 25 seconds for the one thousand feet of steal to come down to the ground.
