September 1, 2011 at 3:59 AM (PT)
Two of the states planning statewide Emergency Alert System tests are NEVADA and MICHIGAN. Both states' broadcasters organizations are looking to run tests in SEPTEMBER in advance of the nationwide test set for NOVEMBER 9th.
NEVADA's test, reported in the NEVADA BROADCASTERS ASSOCIATION newsletter, will take place at a date to be announced and will be launched from FEMA to CITADEL Talk KKOH-A/RENO and BEASLEY Talk KDWN-A/LAS VEGAS to be propagated from those stations to others.
MICHIGAN's plan is for a test on SEPTEMBER 22nd at about 10:45a (ET). The statewide test replaces regularly scheduled regional required monthly tests for SEPTEMBER only and will originate from CITADEL Talk WJR-A/DETROIT.
