Rhythm & News Outage/Impairment on January 7-8

JPR experienced a major failure of a critical computer system that is central to the routing and control of our Rhythm and News Service at approximately 9pm on Tuesday evening, January 7th.

Our chief engineer will work through the evening to ensure that we have alternate programming available tonight and Morning Edition is available tomorrow at 5am.  We want to let you know that our schedule may be partially impaired until we can restore the system from backup systems.  Thanks for your patience as we work to resolve this issue.

Many popular programs returned to the airwaves like Radiolab, and Science Friday, and a number of existing programs moved to either new spots in the schedule, or in the case of Fresh Air and Q, a different schedule entirely.
