KVLY channel 11 (44 digital) is the NBC television affiliate based in Fargo, North Dakota that serves much of eastern North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota. The station is most notable for using the tallest above-ground structure in the world for broadcasting its signal. The KVLY-TV mast rises 2,063 feet (628.8 m) high, and set the standard for current height limitations in the United States. Crosstown competitor KXJB channel 4 operates the second-tallest tower in the world.

The station's call sign was changed from KTHI (implying "high") to KVLY in 1995. The current call sign represents the station's slogan, "The Valley's Choice," as it serves the communities along the Red River of the North and its tributaries. Longtime personalities at the station include Charley Johnson, who is now General Manager in addition to being an evening news anchor, and "Too Tall Tom" Szymanski, KVLY's 6' 10" (208 cm) meteorologist.

KVLY is owned by NBC North Dakota.

KVLY-TV mast at AllExperts (388 words)
The KVLY-TV mast (formerly the KTHI-TV mast) is a television transmitting tower in North Dakota, USA, used by Fargo station KVLY channel 11.
It became the tallest artificial structure upon the completion of its construction on August 13, 1963.
The mast was surpassed in height by 18 m (57 ft) in 1974 by the Warszawa radio mast near Konstantynow, Poland, but the latter collapsed on August 8, 1991, making the KVLY mast again the tallest structure on land.
