Old antenna removed from WSFA tower

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - We’ve been telling you for weeks and on Tuesday the process began.

A helicopter climbed more than 2,000 feet to the top of WSFA 12 News’ broadcasting tower in south Montgomery County for a much anticipated project.

The helicopter crew eventually took the old antenna off the top of the “Tall Tower” in Grady. Soon, another helicopter will bring in a new antenna to replace it.

Now, the final push is on. You have until July 2 to make a plan to rescan to continue getting WSFA 12 News’ signal.

Starting at 10 a.m. Thursday, you’ll need to rescan your TV set in order to continue getting our programming if you’re using an over-the-air TV antenna.

This change affects only those watching WSFA with an antenna. It does not have any impact on cable or satellite users.
