KHAK Among Stations Devastated on April’s Fools Day
April Fool's Day was no joke here at KHAK and our sister stations, and unfortunately, we're still dealing with it.
Monday morning at approximately 6:25, things started to go south when the KHAK in-studio computer system refused to respond to commands. When closed, the program wouldn't reopen. The nightmare had begun.
