They need to communicate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Broadcast infrastructure is a mission critical environment, particularly when a single instance of system downtime and radio/tv silence could potentially result in a huge loss in advertising revenue. No news station wants to miss their ‘breaking news’ exclusive due to system downtime, not to mention damaging listener/viewer loyalty and reputation. In other words, they don’t want to be the topic of news rather than the provider of news!
Silence is not always golden. Especially for broadcast media organisations.

protect listener and viewer loyalty;
