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.
