FAIRFAX DISTRICT, Calif. (KTLA) — A historic radio tower was ripped to the ground with the help of a bulldozer Wednesday.

The massive tower came down in a matter of seconds, and with it, a chapter in L.A. history.

Crews worked four days to make sure the former KHJ tower fell safely.

KHJ went on the air in the 20s and in the 60’s it was the top 40 AM station for all of Los Angeles.

The call letters KHJ stood for kindness, happiness and joy.

Jim Castillo has more.
