NAB Distributes AMBER Alert PSAs
Washington - Jan 5, 2007 - The NAB is distributing PSAs to radio and TV stations that remind listeners and viewers of the importance of the communications channel between the public, law enforcement officers and local broadcasters through the AMBER Alert Plan. The PSAs feature America's Most Wanted host John Walsh, whose six-year-old son was abducted and murdered in 1981, and Ed Smart, father of Elizabeth Smart who was abducted in the summer of 2002 and found alive in March 2003, and will begin airing on Jan. 13 to coincide with the anniversary of the abduction of Amber Hagerman, for whom the program is named. Radio stations can download audio PSAs from the NAB website.
