Best of Show: Futuri RadioGPT

It creates a script for on-air use, and AI voices turn it into audio

We are featuring the products that won the Radio World Best of Show Award at the recent NAB Show. Winners were chosen by a panel of radio engineers and RW editorial staff for their innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry.

It’s hard to recall a product that generated so much “buzz” at a tradeshow, at least since Voltair was shaking things up for PPM subscribers. And Futuri wasn’t even on the exhibit floor; the company had an official show suite. But people were talking about RadioGPT everywhere.

As Radio World reported in our April 26 cover story, Futuri calls RadioGPT the world’s first AI-driven localized radio content solution. 

That promise of being “localized” is notable. The platform combines GPT-4 technology with AI voice tech, but it also deploys an AI-driven “story discovery and social content system” called TopicPulse to give the voices local content to talk about. It scans Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and a quarter of a million other sources of news and information, to find topics that are trending in your market. Then it creates a script for on-air use, and AI voices turn it into audio.
