WDYT/Charlotte Goes Dark
January 29, 2009 at 5:14 AM (PT)
After dropping local programming in DECEMBER, CRN COMMUNICATIONS Talk WDYT-A/CHARLOTTE has now gone dark. The station went silent on MONDAY and has notified the FCC that it has gone dark, but CRN has not returned the license to the Commission.
Co-owner and former host DANNY FONTANA, who bought the station in 2006 and moved the station closer to CHARLOTTE from its community of license in KINGS MOUNTAIN with studios in downtown CHARLOTTE, told the CHARLOTTE OBSERVER's MARK WASHBURN, "Revenues fell below the expense levels. I couldn't see running in the red."
