Florida Trio Goes Dark
Update 7/15: As John Davis mentioned below in the comments, the stations have filed for STA’s to permit their time off the air. The filing counters the the statement of programming retooling by stating that the owners of the station are dealing with medical situations.
THE HUSBAND AND WIFE PRINCIPALS OF THE LICENSEE RECENTLY EXPERIENCED PERSONAL CIRCUMSTANCES, INCLUDING MEDICAL SITUATIONS, THAT HAVE TEMPORARILY COMPROMISED THEIR ABILITY TO OVERSEE THE STATION WITH THE SAME DEGREE TO WHICH THEY ARE ACCUSTOMED AND COMFORTABLE. AS A RESULT, THE LICENSEE BELIEVES THE BEST COURSE OF ACTION IS TO TEMPORARILY CEASE OPERATIONS. THE LICENSEE EXPECTS TO RE-COMMENCE FULL OPERATIONS IN APPROXIMATELY 10-12 WEEKS.
Original Report 7/12: Power Country Inc. is taking their trio of stations off the air tonight.
92.1 WNFK Perry, 102.1 WQLC Watertown, and 960 WGRO Lake City, which all currently simulcast as “Power Country” will suspend operations at 7:00pm this evening until the fall.
Station GM Scott Savage claims the suspension of operations is to “re-tool its country music format into a much more dynamic and improved radio product.” The stations serve Northern Florida northwest of Gainesville where the peninsula meets the panhandle.
