CLARION COMMUNICATIONS Talk WYXC-A/CARTERSVILLE, GA has gone dark after equipment failure silenced the station and the company decided that the cost of restoring service would be too great.
A press release posted at FACEBOOK reads, "We have spent the last two days evaluating the situation to determine the expense and length of time required for WYXC to become operational again.... In light of these radio industry changes and the impact we’ve experienced from the severe economic downturn, we cannot justify the expense in equipment and labor to put WYXC back on the air at this time." The release adds, "We are in discussions now with others, including the previous owner, who may be interested in placing WYXC back on the air."
