Clear Channel Outdoor and Nevada Amber Alert Committee Successfully Conclude Alert Tests -- System is Now Live

New, Digital Billboards Provide Invaluable Community Service; Provide Up-to-the-Minute Updates for Child Endangerment Service New Alert System Builds on Recent, Successful Amber Alert System Launch in Cleveland, Ohio


Clear Channel Outdoor (NYSE:CCO) and the Nevada Amber Alert Committee today announced the successful conclusion of Amber Alert testing on seven digital billboards serving the Las Vegas area. The completion of the test officially gives the Nevada Amber Alert Committee access to the digital billboards. The seven billboards are located along key areas within the Las Vegas Area.

"We could not be more excited about our ability to utilize our digital technology to provide this invaluable community service, which will be available to Las Vegas not only when a child is missing but also during a wide array of other community emergencies," said Paul Meyer, Global President of Clear Channel Outdoor. "We expect to establish similar emergency messaging protocols in other cities where Clear Channel Outdoor has deployed digital networks."

"These digital billboards will allow police agencies in Clark County to get missing children information out as quickly as possible. We'd like to thank Clear Channel Outdoor for giving local authorities unprecedented access to these billboards," said Bob Fisher, President of the Nevada Broadcasters Association and of the Nevada Amber Alert Committee.

As part of its agreement with Nevada Amber Alert Committee, the Las Vegas division of Clear Channel Outdoor now has the ability to download missing child information, including a photograph. By activating a system that is set up only for the purpose of communicating Amber Alert messages, the information will override the commercial schedule that is currently playing on each digital unit and quickly broadcast the Amber Alert information to thousands of people instantaneously.

Information kits and video are now available regarding the Digital Outdoor Network at
