The Future is Here! Amazon Echo's Alexa is Guest Radio Station DJ


Beasley Media Group's Philadelphia area radio station 95.7 Ben FM will have Amazon Echo's "Alexa" as a guest DJ on Friday, August 25th from 2-6p. On top of presenting the music, Alexa will giveaway Amazon Echo Dots during her on-air shift.

Beasley is rolling out Alexa Skills for all of our stations nationwide and this is a creative example of how we are promoting it to our audience on Ben FM,” Beasley Media Group EVP/Programming Justin Chase said.

“We’re very excited about the 95.7 Ben FM Skill going live on Amazon Echo,” Ben FM PD Chuck Damico said. “We thought having “Alexa” do an air shift and give away some Amazon Echo Dots is a really fun way to help launch the Ben FM skill and introduce it to our audience.”




Is this the WTF moment for syndicated radio? "Alexa play Mary J. Blige, Ne-Yo, and Bruno Mars. ...Alexa play the latest entertainment news from TMZ...Alexa what's the weather for today from Al Roker?...Alexa play the Roland Martin Segment from the Tom Joyner Morning Show... Alexa play J. Anthony Brown Murder the Hits...play Nephew Tommy's Prank Phone Call...play Miss Bernice Church Announcements...play Tommy's Prank Phone Call again...play ESPN's First Take. ...play Donkey of the Day from The Breakfast Club"
