The NBC Tower built in 1989 and previous home to Jerry Springer and Jenny Jones (attached 4 story building). It is owned by WMAQ-TV channel 5 which is not in line with major cities having the same channel number (NBC is usually 4) but since WTMJ in Milwaukee had interference with WBKB CBS switched to 2 and WMAQ went to 5. See what power Milwaukee has!
