Listeners to IHeartMedia's Kiss 108 this morning learned one of the dangers of stations automating their operations: The station's news reports (shut up, yes, Kiss 108 has news reports) kept repeating "breaking" news of the Las Vegas massacre, which, of course, happened back in October. Chris taped one of the "news" broadcasts, says it was repeated at least five times today and says the station may have been running the same report since Friday.
Tristan Walsh, who listens to the newly IHeartMediaized (trend here?) WBZ NewsRadio, reports:
Last night’s WBZ midnight news was a re run of First Night and cold warnings from last weekend... got to love automation.
