Washington - Nov 9, 2009 - The National Association of Broadcasters circulated a letter signed by 60 Representatives to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski. The letter encourages the adoption of FM radio tuners in mobile phone handsets. The letter notes that radio's emergency alert system is "a proven, reliable service," and urges the FCC and DHS to "consider extending American's access to radio EAS information via mobile phone handsets."

The complete letter can be viewed through the NAB website.
