For more than six decades, the KTLA call letters have loomed proudly over the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Van Ness Street in Los Angeles. On Monday, the tower came down. “When you are driving up or down the 101, you see that tower, you know where you are,” Eric Spillman, a longtime reporter at the LA independent station, told the Los Angeles Times. “To see it taken apart and moved, people are going to feel like something’s missing.”
The tower was forced from its perch to make way for a new 14-story office building, but the tower will be back–set to move back to its original location in Hollywood sometime in 2015.
