The sale of the Poole Tower Complex on Mt. Wilson to InSite Towers Development LLC, has closed, according to the deal broker, Media Services Group.
Rising almost 6,000 feet above sea level, the Poole Tower Complex was first developed in the 1950s by the late Los Angeles broadcaster John H. Poole. Poole was granted the first commercial UHF television construction permit in Los Angeles for KBIK(TV) in 1951. In 1953, the station moved to Mt. Wilson and changed call letters to KBIC(TV). In 1959, the complex became home to Poole-owned KBIG(FM).
Among the current Los Angeles stations at the Poole Tower Complex today are iHeartMedia’s KBIG and KYSR(FM), KWHY(TV) and KXOS(FM).
Bob Heymann of the Chicago office of Media Services Group served as the exclusive broker representing Poole Properties Inc.
