Alpha Media EVP of Content Phil Becker said adding AI will allow the radio station "to be more agile than ever." "Radio GPT allows us to showcase our content creators in more instances, with more frequency, and curate more timely, topical, and robust information for Alpha audiences and clients than previously possible." PHONY BUYER REVIEWS PLAGUE INTERNET AS AMAZON SLAMS SOCIAL MEDIA GIANTS The station posted a Tweet on Tuesday of Elzinga sharing the new AI host with her listeners.

States weigh charging by the mile as fuel taxes plummet
Gas taxes have been used for more than a century for the purpose.The problem that has developed is those taxes are generating less each year due to inflation, fuel efficiency and the rise of electric cars. States are experimenting with various ideas that could eventually replace those taxes.One proposal that seems to be gaining in popularity would be to charge drivers by the mile instead of the gallon. Other ideas that have been presented include taxing electricity from public vehicle charging stations.Another is to tack charges onto door-to-door package deliveries. States are now weighing whether to start making the programs mandatory.In 2015, Oregon began a pilot program charging motorists by the distance their vehicle travels rather than the gas it guzzles.To participate, drivers plug a device into their vehicle and create an account to capture mileage data.The federal government is about to pilot its own program, funded by $125 million from President Biden's infrastructure measure that he signed in November 2021.So far, only three states, Oregon, Utah and Virginia are generating revenue from road usage charges.Hawaii will join them next.Last year, Colorado began adding a 27-cent tax to home deliveries from Amazon and other online retailers to help fund transportation projects.Other states have been testing electronic toll systems.Electric car sales in the U.S. rose from just 0.1% of total car sales in 2011 to 4.6% in 2021, according to the U.S.

Russian defense minister makes 1st public appearance since mercenary revolt
mercenary uprising demanded his ouster, inspecting troops in Ukraine in a video released Monday aimed at projecting a sense of order after the country’s most serious political crisis in decades.But uncertainty still swirled about his fate, that of rebellion leader Yevgeny Prigozhin and his private army, the impact on the war in Ukraine and even the political future of President Vladimir Putin.A feud between Wagner Group leader Prigozhin and Russia's military brass that has festered throughout the war erupted into a mutiny that saw the mercenaries leave Ukraine to seize a military headquarters in a southern Russian city and march seemingly unopposed on Moscow, before turning around after less than 24 hours on Saturday.The Kremlin said it had made a deal that Prigozhin will move to Belarus and receive an amnesty, along with his soldiers. Yet on Monday, Russian media reported that a criminal probe against him continued, and his whereabouts were unknown.The video of Shoigu — the first of him shown since the uprising that demanded his ouster — came as Russian media speculated that he and other top military leaders have lost Putin’s confidence and could be replaced.Shoigu was shown in the Defense Ministry video in a helicopter and then meeting with officers at a military headquarters in Ukraine.
