An AI-generated radio DJ could be coming to your local radio station.

RadioGPT, a GPT-4-powered radio content generator from media company Futuri, is set to debut next month in radio stations in the US and Canada, Axios Cleveland reported.

Powered by the same tech that ChatGPT draws upon, RadioGPT aims to man radio airtime spots with AI-generated scripts and voices, as well as tailored local news content.

You can listen to a demo from the company that gives you a preview of what the AI-generated DJ voices sound like — which tell listeners that they are, in fact, fully AI — sprinkled between curated songs. The page includes snippets of RadioGPT-generated voices presenting news, weather, and traffic updates.

“Anything a radio human can do, I can do better,” one of the AI hosts can be heard saying in between songs. “Every voice you hear is 100% AI.”

Another voice summarized an uplifting local news story before launching.

But another example of a “trending” story appeared to suggest the AI had somehow received early access or confirmation about Apple’s yet-to-be-announced iPhone 15 Pro.

“I got a sneak peak of the iPhone 15 Pro,” the AI said, before mentioning unconfirmed features, including its battery life. “It looks like it’s coming in September. That’s the cool thing about us AI types, no need to recharge — we just keep going and going and going.”

It’s likely the AI was pulling from online reports or unconfirmed leaks from blogs covering the latest Apple rumors.

The news that the AI technology is coming to real radio stations might make existing radio DJs squirm and wonder if their jobs are now at-risk of being replaced.

But Futuri CEO and founder Daniel Anstandig told Axios that RadioGPT was designed to “save radio, not compete with it.”

“Our research shows that seven out of 10 air shifts around the world are already unmanned with generic production or voice tracking,” Anstandig told Axios. “What we’re looking to do is augment a station’s ability to fill its programming with more live and local content.”

How will we work in the future?

The technology will launch mid-April at Alpha Media, which oversees more than 200 radio stations in the US, and Rogers Sports & Media, which owns 55 stations and over 29 podcasts in Canada, according to Axios.
