KVLY channel 11 (44 digital) is the NBCtelevision 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 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.
