Nexstar Media Group’s new tower nearing completion

Nexstar Media Group’s new tower nearing completion

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – Nexstar Media Group’s new tower being constructed in southwest Shawnee County is nearing completion.

On Wednesday, the tower crew installed a 40-foot tall, 4,000 pound microwave antennae on the top of the 1,433 foot tower.

Nexstar is investing several million dollars in the Topeka and Shawnee County community with a new tower upgrade for its KTKA and KTMJ broadcasting channels.

“We have a 1,400 foot tower on West Union Road that will be replaced by a 1,433 foot galvanized structure,” said Troy Caldwell, Chief Engineer with KSNT, KTMJ and KTKA. “We have been working on this project since early 2018. At that time we determined we needed a new tower.”

The new tower is being constructed by Electronics Research Inc., from Chandler, Indiana. ERI provides engineers, designers, fabricators, project managers and installers to install broadcast antennas, transmission lines and towers. It took a 275 ton Wilkerson crane to lift the bottom section in place. The 1,433-foot tower includes 41 sections with each section 35-feet long and a total weight of over 90 tons including antennas.

Nexstar Media Group is the largest local television and media company in the United States with 196  full power stations in 114 market, reaching nearly 63% of U.S. television households.
