That sounds like the same announcement they've been using for a long
time. Too many things are done automatically these days, and it
makes for some very incompetent appearances.
Last night, as I was watching TV, a network ad or promo started, then
it was cut off by a local ad. Later, a local news promo was cut off
by another ad. And, as I previously noted, during last week's
changeover, WKLB played the National Anthem as their last record on
99.5, but it was cut off and finished on 102.5. I assume this was
all automated, where a human engineer would have had the sense to
wait another second to let it finish.
I suppose this is in the same category as the frequent dropped verbs
and other gramatical glitches caused by bad word processing editing
and is a sign of the decline and fall of civilization.
