KFI will get a new tower.

The city council in La Mirada, Calif., this month OK’d the plan to replace the tower that fell when an airplane hit it in a fatal crash in late 2004, according to the Orange County Register newspaper.

Company officials hope to have the replacement structure up as early as this summer.

Clear Channel owns the station; the new structure will be 684 feet and stand at 16608 Trojan Way.
