The Federal Communications Commission Thursday announced settlements with broadcast, cable and radio outlets over misuse of Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) tones.

In addition to the fines the programmers agreed to compliance plans in their settlements, which are formally known as consent decrees.

Jimmy Kimmel's ABC late-night show will pay the largest civil penalty, $395,000, in connection with an Oct. 3, 2018, episode that used a simulated WEA tone during a comedic sketch about "The Textening," a fictional horror movie in which citizens can't escape receiving text messages from President Trump.

AMC drama "The Walking Dead" faces a $104,000 fine for use of EAS tones in the Feb. 17 episode, "Omega."

Two other parties also were fined. Discovery's Animal Planet network will pay $68,000 in connection with a 2018 episode of "Lone Star Law" titled "Thousand Year Flood." The program picked up a real wireless alert while filming Texas game wardens in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

Finally, Meruelo Radio Holdings faces a $67,000 penalty for a simulated warning signal broadcast on California radio stations KDAY and KDEY-FM.

In a press release announcing the settlements, the FCC explained the need to prevent confusion regarding use of the emergency tones.

"The use of actual or simulated EAS tones during non-emergencies and outside of proper testing or public service announcements is a serious public safety concern. The FCC’s rules prohibit such broadcasting of EAS tones – including simulations of them – except during actual emergencies, authorized tests or authorized public service announcements."
