Our home recently suffered power outage and all of a sudden we were completely detached from the rest of the world. FM chips on my mobile phone would have been helpful as I was in the dark. More choice the better for the listeners/consumers.

I would love the FM Chip. Local and world news updates are available upon the hour, every hour on public radio. It's more effecient than streaming online all the time. If only there were one little button on the outer shell of the phone that would connect me immediately to the local radio station. The less streaming and/or buttons I have to do, the better. Cell phone + one button + radio = rational and ideal.

Having been through more disasters than I can count the FM radio has been the first place I go for more info. Yes apps are good for some things however they don't reach everyone. September ll disaster was the hardest to get info on because NYC lost most of their broadcast towers so they lost the terrestrial coverage. As well as putting FM on cell phones, FCC needs to mandate that ALL FM and AM stations have at least 2 people at broadcast facilities at all times to pre-emt broadcasts.

I have FM on my MP3 player, never use it. Not one of the FM stations in my area even break programming for weather incidents. What would really be good? Put an NWS All Hazards radio chip into the phone. Then you are guaranteed the information you need for personal safety!

I don't know of a single person who tuned into the radio to find out what was going on during the recent disasters. People go to the internet or watch TV.

Sorry, I'm part of the industry but the idea that we need FM chips in phones to provide emergency information is laughable. Consumers have choices now, even during disasters, whether we like it or not.
