News story on the demolition of WELR's old tower, which was brought
down to make way for a bypass around town.

- Appears to have
always been WELR, and to have come on the air around 1949.
Prior to picking up CBS Sports Radio affiliation with the network's
debut in early January 2013, the station was an ESPN
affiliate. The tower, which was erected in 1950, was taken
down in July of 2013 to make room for an extension of Alabama
highway 22 to US-431, creating a truck route bypass around the
town. The call sign changed from WELR to WLWE in September
