SPECai blends AI scripts and AI voices with Benztown music beds to create fully produced SPEC commercials in seconds. 


RYE, NY, February 12, 2024  COMPASS MEDIA NETWORKS announces CONNOISEUR MEDIA’s stations in Connecticut and Long Island as charter affiliates for SPECai, a joint venture between Compass Media Networks, Benztown, and ENCO, that provides radio stations with creative custom spec commercials in mere seconds using powerful AI technology.


Connoisseur Media’s Long Island and Connecticut clusters including WALK-FM, WBZO-FM, WEBE-FM, WEZN-FM, WHLI-AM, WICC-AM, WKJY-FM, WPLR-FM and WWSK-FM are the first to officially sign on.


David Bevins, Chief Operating Officer / Long Island General Manager of Connoisseur, comments, “We all desire to win new business and the usage of spec spots is vitally important.  With the innovative SPECai, crafting three creative scripts, selecting from a variety of voices, and even orchestrating a music bed has become astonishingly effortless. It’s the quickest and most efficient way to generate compelling spec spots, created by radio people for radio people.  SPECai allows your reps to hit the streets and sell more radio.”


Kristin Okesson, Senior Vice President / Connecticut Market Manager of Connoisseur adds, “With SPECai, we get efficiency, creativity, and quality all in one place. It transforms the way we create spec spots — three different scripts, an incredibly realistic AI voice, and the added benefit of Benztown music. It’s a unique blend of tech, creativity, and convenience that our local sales team values.”
