Sydney Radio Stations to Replace Hosts with Canned Laughter

RADIO

Sydney’s commercial radio stations this morning have detailed plans to replace all on-air talent with pre-recorded canned laughter.

“Our hosts are the best in the business at laughing at nothing but times are tough for media and we’ve already gotten rid of all the journalists and fact checkers so the hosts were the next logical people to go,” a commercial radio spokesperson said.

“It was also a medical issue. It’s a little-known fact that hosts often need to sticky tape their faces back together after fake laughing so long.”

A research company who conducted blind tests for the new approach said listeners couldn’t tell the difference between the current hosts and canned laughter.

“Sometimes the audience even preferred the canned laughter, as it was more believable,” a researcher said.

The Sydney Sentinel couldn’t find anyone that actually listened to commercial radio to comment.
