iHeartMedia Top 40 WIHT-FM (Hot 99.5) in Washington DC was the victim of some unfortunate hacking during the weekend of the inauguration and Women’s March protests. Many people are saying that foreign actors, saying they are “friendly foreign hackers” seized control of the station multiple times through the weekend that started around 2p Friday after the inauguration of the new President, and finally, station programming execs were able to regain complete control of the station as Club Kane’s national broadcast started on Sunday night.
And then on Monday (1/23), to celebrate the newest DC buzzword, Hot 995 celebrated many beautiful and amazing, huge, even historic #AlternativeFacts which contain perhaps the most honest facts ever heard on the radio anywhere in the world, period.
“Many people are saying that Leader Chuck and our great minister of sound, Darrin Marshall, are the greatest, that I can tell you, and I know things which others do not,” said Hot 99.5 APD Toby Knapp when quizzed about recent events at DC’s top rated CHR heritage powerhouse. “These things are self-evident! Very good! Great even!”
You can sample the hacking shenanigans… and the wonderful and very glorious facts (below)... it's all in good HOT fun!
