Was the Weather Alert supposed to interrupt our local programming?  Our ENDEC did not.

It was actually the "Wireless Emergency Alert” that was sent out to cell phones, and the EAS alert was sent out via broadcast outlets.

**Yes**, it should have interrupted your on-air broadcast immediately upon reception (from any one of the various monitoring sources including IPAWS).

You should probably (make that “definitely”) check that out.
