Thieves Empty Greenville Radio Station Trailer

The White Horse Road trailer that houses WCSZ 1070 AM was targeted by thieves twice this month.  A wide range of expensive equipment was stolen, including microphones and computers, leaving the radio station unable to broadcast.  A $150,000 transmitter will also need to be replaced.

The station’s former general manger, Jerry Young, told News 4 someone broke into the radio station on Dec. 16, and then again this week.

Young showed Muserallo the broadcast booth where the station used to broadcast its sports show, then golden oldies format before it went off air in 2007.

“It’s destroyed. It’s gone,” Young said. “I want people to know that this happened and perhaps somebody will see something and hear something that will lead to an arrest.”

Young thinks someone broke into the building looking for copper, but then saw a golden opportunity.

The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office is investigating this crime as a case of grand larceny.
