On September 2, 2011, around 2:20 AM, a fire destroyed the studios of Ad Astra Per Aspera Broadcasting, which included KSKU, as well as KWHK, KNZS, and KXKU. As a result, all four stations were off the air for nearly a month until temporary studios were set up in a nearby building. KSKU 94.7 and KNZS 100.3 returned to the air at 7:00 PM on Wednesday, September 28, 2011. The first song after the relaunch was "Meet Me Halfway" by the Black Eyed Peas. Rather than rebuilding after the fire, Ad Astra per Aspera Broadcasting permanently relocated to a preexisting building.
