This is a good idea. I am a fan of talk radio. Though the move would be only great if not just FM radio gets approved but also AM radio also would get the go to be able to listen to on a smartphone.

Many if not most radio stations stream already. Get a radio app and listen to your hearts content.

AM radio would not work well because of the interference caused by mobile phone components and the need for a large antenna. Just not realistic to put that in a tiny phone and somehow shield it.

FM in a phone works well using the headphone cord as an antenna.

The FCC might want me to listen to radio, but that is their problem not mine. Right wing propaganda, news chosen to anger, masturbation over sports, and songs about truckers losing their mates just don't interest me.

The FCC is not concerned about talk shows. The Federal Emergency Management Agency wants to be able to send alerts in a crisis that makes the Internet networks go down.

I would get banned if I commented fully on my views of FEMA. I was in Florida during hurricanes, and I had a friend who TRIED to help in N.O. after Katrina but was blocked by FEMA. I'm not alt-right, but would kick FEMA off my property in a heartbeat as bad socialism.

Whether or not you like FEMA is irrelevant. How anyone can think this is a bad idea is beyond me. It adds nothing to the cost.

I had an FM Radio in my old HTC. It was very cool. Great for sporting events. Put one ear bud in.

Most if not all cell phone already have this ability to get FM radio with headphones. You just need to get the FM app if its not included on the phone. They just dont advertise this.. as most dont care. Samsung phones can pick up FM stations. The chipset uses as the ability to do this.
