    The four-tower complex atop Mt. Wilson 6,000 feet above Los Angeles is for sale.

    The site dates to 1952 when the late Los Angeles broadcaster John H. Poole developed the site.

    Media Services Group announced it’s been retained by Poole Properties Inc. to explore the sale. MSG Spokesman Robert Heymann Jr. tells the Los Angeles Business Journal the multitower site is “beachfront property” and could command between $5 million–$10 million.

    Today, the site is home to towers for iHeartMedia’s KBIG(FM) and KYSR(FM), Grupo Radio Centro’s KXOS(FM) as well as Fox affiliate KWHY(TV.)

    Hmmm. There appears to be more than four towers up there. I wonder which four are for sale.

    Interesting. I would assume that site would be worth more than $10 million.

    By the way, KYSR is not on Mt. Wilson. They have a 5kW aux at that site, but the main signal is from a tower near West Hollywood.
