Tower involved in plane crash wasn’t WBIG’s

It turned out the radio tower involved in a deadly plane crash that killed four people last week did not belong to Aurora’s WBIG-FM, but an old tower once used by the former WYSY-FM (107.9), according to Radio-Info’s Tom Taylor (through his newsletter, which is subscription-only.). WYSY is now Spanish-language WLEY-FM, which does not use the facility.

Meanwhile, those lights on the radio tower – which some said wasn’t working when the plane crashed into it – turned out to be working after all.
