KVTK Tower Goes Down

KVTK(AM) in Yankton, S.D., had one of those days on Monday.

The sports station and ESPN affiliate had its tower collapse after a guy wire was accidentally cut by a mowing crew. No one was injured.

The station was temporarily off the air for a couple of days but as of Thursday morning it had returned to the air. It is owned by 5 Star Communications.
