KPCC Had a Case of the Mondays

It was a rough Monday morning for the folks over at KPCC.

Larry Mantle points out the station’s digital audio system crashed, which brought live programming to a screeching halt:

As best I understand it, our digital audio system completely crashed around 5 this morning.  We had no ability to pull audio from our storage system, severely limiting Steve Julian’s ability to gather local news stories for “Morning Edition.”  However, given Steve’s, and his producer’s, resourcefulness, they were able to transfer a limited number of stories to a portable hard drive from which they could be aired.

For “Madeleine Brand” and “AirTalk,” there was simply no way to do a live show.  We were without a functional phone system, and had only one working studio in the entire Mohn Broadcast Center.

However, we’re now back and running full speed.  Our engineers, who’ve been working since early this morning, are still trouble-shooting to fully understand what caused the crash.  Thanks for your patience and understanding.
