BEAUFORT COUNTY, NC (WITN) – A series of implosions is all it took to bring down 48 radio towers that have been a part of U.S. history for over 50 years.
It happened Monday morning at the old Voice of America Site A in Beaufort County.
Not used since 2006, the VOA site was sold to Beaufort County as surplus U.S. property.
Environmental Holdings Group of Morrisville teamed up with Controlled Demolition Incorporated to implode and haul off the 48 towers.
It took less than a minute for it all to come down.
Voice of America still broadcasts from Site B to Latin America, Cuba, the Caribbean, and Africa. – Watch Video!
