A low power community FM in LAKE WYLIE, SC, near CHARLOTTE, has shut down after three years of operation. The LAKE WYLIE PILOT reports that WYLI-LP closed down on NEW YEAR'S EVE due to several factors like limited coverage area and lack of financial support.
Founder and President JOHN DOLIVE told the paper, "I have had a great time starting this station and keeping it going. I started it because I believed LAKE WYLIE was a unique community with tightknit people who are interested in the lake. I thought that there could be some interest if the station could have been heard like we wanted it to, and it could have been."
