KHIP, the 1998 comedy from director Tony Singletary (director of TV shows such as The Wayans Bros. and Moesha), follows the travails of a troubled Seattle radio station trying to make ends meet. The station in question is KSOF, which once was a thriving classical music station but has fallen on hard times. Ratings are down, advertisers are staying away, and the station has to figure out how it is going to go on. Obviously desperate times call for desperate measures, and thus this classical music station decides to change itself into a hip-hop station. This change obviously is not the sort of thing that sits well with KSOF's established audience, and the waves the change creates throughout the industry and the Seattle community are severe. Facing betrayed classical music fans and protestors who miss their Bach and Tchaikovsky, the station managers must deal with the ramifications of their new path forward.
