LOS ANGELES, CA – June 28, 2024 – FYI, a pioneer in creative technology solutions today announced the introduction of RAiDiO.FYI, a new conversational AI platform that turns the airwaves into interactive media via a new dimension of connection to music, talk radio, and cultural content.

Putting the Ai into RAiDiO and STAiTioN, RAiDiO.FYI is ready to transform the industry, busting through the walls of traditional one-way media limitations. Every listener can now be an active participant, as well as a creator of their own station that refreshes dynamically as fast as the web, exploring passions and interests on a much deeper level.

The reveal of RAiDiO.FYI took place at the Grammy Museum during a Q&A discussion, “Black Music Past, Present and Future and the Impact of Technology” between will.i.am, Founder & CEO of FYI and Harvey Mason jr., CEO of The Recording Academy.

Powered by FYI, RAiDiO.FYI is evolving broadcasting into hyper-casting, bringing information to life, inviting people to chat with their radio stations, to interrupt anytime to ask the station questions about the music, the stories behind the beats, and delve deeper into the news, sports, culture, fashion, etc. Curated channels featuring exclusive content will be available across a range of interests, elevating every listener into an active participant in a living info-verse.

FYI Founder & CEO will.i.am comments about creating RAiDiO.FYI:

“I came up with the concept of RAiDiO because of my love and passion for music and tech. Traditional radio is tech – it’s spectrum and broadband. AI is the New Tech and with this new form of voice computing, we can reimagine how people engage with information and entertainment. In an ultra-interactive engaging way, RAiDiO allows the listener to flow as deep as they want as the world unfolds, and vibe with the music in the most dynamic way imaginable.”

Customized Stations: artists, brand and events can now have bespoke stations with curated content and information.

Personalization: Listeners can customize their own radio stations by curating specific news and topics they want to listen to, providing a deeply personalized experience
