Re: EAS System

Again, that's probably an operator asleep at the switch(er) or the engineers
at 'NDS need to do some reprogramming. (I can hear their sales manager now:
"Next time break into the show, not a commercial!")  It happens to radio and
TV stations all the time, simply because operators are intimidated or not
properly trained on EAS, though many TV stations use a crawl now, which
minimizes the interruption. Radio stations where the jock/host is listening
to a program feed, rather than an air feed are often completely oblivious to
the fact that anything ever happened, since the ENDEC is almost always
downstream from the studio.
