KGTV Tower is a 235 meter high self-support Ideco Dresser television tower in La Jolla, California, United States.

History[edit]

KGTV Tower (originally KFSD-TV tower, later KOGO-TV) was built in 1953, by then owner Thomas Sharp (founder of Sharp Healthcare). The main tower is also identical (although shorter) to former sister station KFSD/KOGO AM 600's twin 416 foot Ideco Dresser towers.

Radio Stations on KGTV Tower[edit]

The main tower is also home of the ERI combined FM antenna containing KMYI 94.1 (Clear Channel), KyXy 96.5 (CBS Radio), KEGY 103.7 (CBS Radio), and KIOZ 105.3 (Clear Channel).

Also at the site is a custom built "H" shaped tower used for microwave, and also serves as the main tower for KSSX 95.7 (Clear Channel).
