Though they're calling this the "world's first," America's news anchors have been NPCs for years!

From CNBC:
A TV anchor has joined a Chinese news agency, but with a twist: he isn't human. China's state-run Xinhua News Agency has launched an artificial intelligence (AI) anchor, a move it claims to be a world first.

"English AI Anchor" debuted Thursday at the World Internet Conference in the country's eastern Zhejiang Province.

Modeled on the agency's Zhang Zhao presenter, the new anchor learns from live videos and is able to work 24 hours a day, reporting via social media and on the Xinhua website. "'He' learns from live broadcasting videos by himself and can read texts as naturally as a professional news anchor," the company said in an online statement.
This could literally replace 98% of TV news anchors (excluding Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, Lou Dobbs and Sean Hannity) without anyone catching on.
