New Ask Alexa Feature

LOS ANGELES, CA, APRIL 3, 2018 — Benztown, a global leader in radio imaging, voiceover, programming and jingles, announces that it will market and distribute Tracy Johnson Media Group’s new daily episodic short radio feature, “Ask Alexa”. The feature is a customizable radio short for stations of all formats and market sizes, and is designed for stations to produce as an interactive segment with station talent. Alexa’s response to a daily life advice question from station talent is unexpected and funny. “Ask Alexa” is available to stations Monday through Friday for just $99 per month or for barter through Benztown.

“Ask Alexa” is written and produced by actor, comedian and Morning Host of 97.1 Amp Radio in Los Angeles, Brian Moote. Stations are provided with scripts so that local on-air personalities pose the questions to Alexa to the responses provided in Alexa’s now-ubiquitous voice. The result is a short, laughter-inducing interaction with station talent.

Tracy Johnson, President, Tracy Johnson Media Group said: “It seems like smart speakers and digital assistants are taking over our lives. And now “Ask Alexa” dishes out hilarious life advice that sometimes hits a little too close to home. Research proves that FUNNY is the #1 thing listeners are looking for in the morning. And Ask Alexa brings the funny every weekday.”

Brian Moote, Writer and Producer of “Ask Alexa”, said: “"I love being able to write and produce content for other morning shows that allows their on-air talent to shine in a fun and engaging way and also opens good discussions about whatever take Alexa has on a given topic."

Tracy Johnson Media Group also created the successful daily episodic short radio feature, “Tough Love With Siri”, available to stations through Benztown.
