OSHA Inspecting Okla. Tower Owner Following Iowa Death


Occupational Safety and Health Administration representatives spent Wednesday inspecting the broadcast tower used by a Sinclair Broadcast Group-owned FOX affiliate serving Iowa’s biggest market as part of an effort to determine if the tower’s owner broke any rules.

The incident occurred just 13 months after a mishap in Missouri claimed the life of a veteran tower consultant.
