I think it speaks to WKBN's ability as a news a news organization that this happened literally in their backyard and there is no video of it. I guess they were too busy picking out mystery songs and personalized license plates for Rich Morgan.

WKBN could lease the tower out to a group that would have TOWER DAY for the jumpers, like the Bridge Day in West Virginia on the New River Gorge Bridge on Rt 19 S. People from all over the country would come there, it would boost the economy for Motels and Restaurants. The Tourist Co would advertise it.
