WTVM/WRBL-TV & WVRK-FM Tower, also known as the WTVM TV Mast, is a 533-meter guyed mast used for television broadcasting by WTVM/WRBL and FM radio broadcasting by WVRK-FM. It is located near Cusseta, Georgia, USA at 32°19′26.0″N, 84°46′46″W.

At the time of its completion in 1962, the WTVM/WRBL-TV & WVRK-FM Tower was the tallest structure in the world. However, in 1963 WIMZ-FM-Tower in Knoxville, Tennessee, USA supplanted it for that title.

Today, despite being comparable in height to the Willis Tower in Chicago, the WTVM/WRBL-TV & WVRK-FM Tower is not even the tallest structure in Cusseta, Georgia. In 2005, the Cusseta Richland Towers Tower, a 538.2 meter guyed mast situated at 32°19′16.4″N, 84°47′28.2″W, surpassed it in height.
