Question ......... Broad Cast Signal .....

I may not being using correct terms or terminology last time I used a on air antenna was over 60 years ago.. When a station broadcast a signal is that signal coming off the tower flat like a disc or shaped like a umbrella. The reason I ask this question is my location 1998 feet + 20' in elevation and 65 miles west of Knoxville TN. Line of sight east has 2 mountains ranges 200--300 feet higher in elevation than my location ( 38571 ). Knoxville TN is appromatley 800-900 feet lower in elevation. I have read numerous articles claiming the height of the transmission towers at Sharps Ridge in Knoxville I have yet to find real figures. If any one knows these figures please post them and any other information regarding signal strength on this subject.
