Drew Carey’s AI-Powered Radio Program Gets Mixed Reactions From Fans
Drew Carey, the host of “The Price is Right” and veteran improv comedian, recently experimented with AI technology during a recent episode of his SiriusXM radio show, “Friday Night Freakout.” Carey used an artificially generated version of his voice, written by ChatGPT, to handle most of his DJ work. The AI voice introduced upcoming songs and recapped what listeners were hearing. However, Carey’s fans were not pleased, and they complained that the voice sounded soulless and lacked Carey’s usual personality.
According to Carey, his fans missed the “real Drew.” The experiment was successful in testing the limits of AI on the radio, but Carey’s fans ultimately forgave him, and he learned his lesson not to repeat the experiment.
