They do talk when its on tv...but it was so low I had to raise the volume to the max to hear it. I thought it was pretty awesome that they cut into your tv shows here to tell you this!

The radio station I was listening to at the time of the announcement of an Amber Alert Monday evening did the emergency broadcast signal then gave a very detailed description of the child, her abductor and his car.

I'm guessing not all radio stations would do that, but I thought it was great.

The NC Lottery terminals also display the alert with details, so the information comes up at essentially every convenience store in the state.
