I've managed to go 45 years without needing AM or any radio for emergency purposes. Even when a supercell came through Alabama back in 2011 and 58 tornadoes touched down in 2 days the TV stations kept broadcasting. (They were broadcasting the tornado rolling through the West and North side of Birmingham live.)

I do have a hand crank AM / FM / weather radio in the earthquake kit.
