Federal Communications Commission member Ajit Pai is "hopeful" that the agency will soon implement a plan to AM revitalization. Pai, during a meeting with broadcasters at KDKA-AM in Pittsburgh, praised the medium as a key tool for emergency communications. "From the St. Patrick's Day Flood of 1936 to the flooding that hit Pittsburgh just a few weeks ago, radio has proven itself to be a quick, efficient and reliable means of getting emergency information out to the public in times of need," Pai said. "When other emergency sources fail, radio comes through."
