On a totally unrelated topic, while surfing Google Earth, the latest picture, from February 2013, the overgrowth around the old WITN transmitter building was cleaned up. Not sure when the photograph before this current one was taken, but if you didn't know where to look on that one, you wouldn't see the building in all the trees.
From the current photograph, all you can see is the roof (no street level, too far off the road), looks to be in bad shape and may be open to the sky in a couple of places. The resolution close in isn't great, but at least some of the roof covering appears to be missing in places and maybe open all the way. I would also assume the land and building have not been owned by WITN in many years.
In the very early 70's when I was a pre-teen I took a tour of that building. It was the first transmitter building I had ever seen. I had already been at the studio in Chocowinity twice before as a child to appear on the Whitney Hobo Show. Sure does date me.
