Why did the mayor of NYC send an emergency alert on cell phones, but did not activate the Emergency Alert System on the radio?

I scanned the radio, both FM and AM, for an activation of the Emergency Alert System in NYC, to no success. I just feel that had somebody had been listening to the radio and not had their cell phone on them to hear, they would not have known. Or if they didn't even HAVE a cell phone. There is a lot of poverty in NYC as you may know.

    Try asking in Law & Ethics or Current Events, as this has NOTHING to do with Travel.
