Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc.

At a press conference held at the FBI Baltimore Division's headquarters today, the FBI along with city, county and state law enforcement shared details on how emergency information will be disseminated via the three digital billboards located in high-traffic areas reaching over 200,000 adults in the area daily.

Immediate notification of severe weather conditions, highway closures due to traffic incidents, disaster preparedness needs, or AMBER Alerts for missing or abducted children, can all be delivered to tens of thousands of motorists in real time by utilizing digital billboards.

"Nine months into our national program with the FBI, we're now also starting to help inform the public of the FBI's top 10 most wanted on digital displays across the country," said Paul Meyer, President and Chief Operating Officer of Clear Channel Outdoor. "Our partnership with the FBI to use our digital networks to assist in the apprehension of fugitives and provide other critical security messages is a logical extension of this indispensable community service tool now reaching the traveling public on a national level."
