The abrupt silencing of Gospel WVOT-A/WILSON, NC has an explanation, courtesy of SATURDAY's edition of the WILSON DAILY TIMES, which reports that the station's owner CHRIST TEMPLE OF PRAISE CHURCH took the station off the air when it lost its tower site.
PD JERRI "KID" BROWN told the paper that the station has a new tower site lined up as well as plans for a boost from 1,000 to 5,000 watts, but awaits FCC approval and needs to raise money to build the new tower. A NOVEMBER 1st car show will be held in front of the church to raise money for the project.
