I’d look at NewsBoss and Burli as the two big fish in the pond.  Neither is especially cheap, but both have their strong points and either will be a decent choice, although they might be overkill for what you are doing now.

I'm interested in finding out what software your newscasters use to play actualities and wraps live on the air.

We currently use a custom program that lets you build a list of news cuts and then auto-pauses between them, waiting for the news anchor to click "OK" to start the next cut. It's a really nifty program which allows adding audio files on the fly while another cut is playing. Problem is, it doesn't work on Windows 10. (I've tried the compatibility settings with no success.)

I'm trying out AP SoundDesk right now but it doesn't seem very user-friendly comparatively.

I would really appreciate any alternate software suggestions.
