THE NAB continues to push radio's importance in informing the public during natural disasters -- and it's belief that cell phones should contain a radio -- with a full page ad running in TODAY's issue of the CAPITOL HILL publication ROLL CALL.
The text of the ad reads:
When the EAST COAST was recently struck by a devastating hurricane, the government's top official charged with protecting American lives during emergencies recognized radio's importance during this crisis.
Whether it’s a hurricane, tornado, snowstorm or simply a power outage, radio is a lifeline in times of emergency -- connecting people to the information they need to stay safe.
And even when cell phone and wireless networks go down, radio works. So why isn’t radio on your cell phone?
If cell phones were equipped with radio receivers, millions of Americans could get instantaneous emergency information wherever they are.
Let’s keep AMERICA safe: Ensure your cell phone is radio ready!
