GEORGIA-CAROLINA RADIOCASTING COMPANY AC WRGC-A/SYLVIA, NC has announced that it has gone dark due to "severe economic conditions." In a message left on its website, the station said it will "discontinue operations until the economy improves.
"With these uncertain times, and the fact that our studio/office/transmitter site lease is set to renew at the end of 2011, we did not feel it was prudent to commit any more of our company resource[s] to subsidize the station's operation," the statement continued. "Our long-term plans for WRGC are not decided, but we have notified the FCC to go off the air until a decision is made."
