New site will complement Richland’s sister facility on Shaw Butte
TAMPA, FLA., and PHOENIX— Richland Towers says it has acquired a tower and building facility at South Mountain, Phoenix.

Richland owns 44 broadcast towers ranging from 85 feet in Sedalia, Colo., to 2,000 feet in Sacramento, Calif. Richland also has a distributed broadcast facility in downtown Manhattan, N.Y.
