CBS Radio News has been using Jutel’s RadioMan 6 radio automation for making work-from-home viable for its continued pandemic operations
The news programming provider effectively shuttered its New York-based operation in March 2020. It had recently been auditioning and testing the latest version of the automation system.
CBS News Radio Digital Media Manager Dustin Gervais said, “The timing of the release of RadioMan 6 couldn’t have been better. Just as we needed to evacuate our broadcast center due to COVID, RadioMan 6 became just the tool we needed to allow anchors at home to broadcast hourly newscasts without expensive codec equipment.” RadioMan handled clips, interviews and voice segments along with providing timing framework from CBS News Radio staffers, on-air talent and contributors from across the country.
Amazon Web Services was used as a production and marshaling node. Jutel’s Olli-Pekka Lukkarinen said, “Final distribution of news was then streamed to the delivery point, where it could be delivered to listeners via Skyview satellite system.”
