The latest version of WO Automation for Radio, version 5.0, includes significant improvements to help broadcasters manage station operations from anywhere, on nearly any device.

Working remotely has become the new normal. That means radio stations require the ability to manage operations from any location, including from home, without compromising functionality or efficiency. WO Automation for Radio v5.0 makes it easy for broadcasters of any size to deliver compelling programming with native desktop (macOS, Windows, Linux) and mobile (iOS) apps to support all operating models – live-assist, fully automated, and everything in between – even with entirely remote operations.

With WO Automation for Radio, you can:

  • Access the entire in-studio experience remotely, from home or on-the-go
  • Leverage talent and content across stations and markets
  • Improve efficiency by integrating with other systems you use every day
  • Manage station operations with a decentralized, remote staff to save on operation costs

WO Automation for Radio v5.0 allows for full control of the radio automation system from anywhere with an internet connection, including remote voice tracking capabilities to provide at-home or on-the-go functionality to equal the in-studio experience.
