A desperate 15th-place radio station in Portland, Oregon, is crowing about cloning Ashley, their midday announcer, with AI. The station–ironically called Live 95.5 (it may be “live” but not “a-live”) is getting roasted on Twitter–as it should–for this disrespectful assault on both the radio profession and audiences.
Ashley got the day off. How long before she (and everyone else on the station–and others) get ALL their days off? This is waaaaaaay different than using AI for something like overnights, weekends, and holidays (which I still hate). This is a MON-FRI MIDDAY SHIFT! And lest you think this is just about some radio DJ jobs, think again.
Here’s their post. I encourage you to read the entire thread. Negative responses outnumber the positive ones by 100-1. Good.
