Located outside Nashville in Brentwood near I-65, the 808-foot, diamond-shaped broadcast tower was erected in 1932.
“Although WSM is best known for its 85-year association with country music and as the radio home of the Grand Ole Opry, WSM was also an invaluable source of news and rural public service programming in its early days and even assisted our military’s defense efforts during the Cold War era,” said WSM operations manager and program director Joe Limardi.
“Since 1932, the WSM tower has been one of the most recognized structures in Nashville, and we’re thrilled that it is now recognized nationally as well.”
