A simulcast is "a broadcast that is carried simultaneously by radio and television (or by FM and AM radio)." [1] The word is a combination of two words simul(taneous) + (broad)cast. [2]

"Simulcasting is a term used to describe the simultaneous transmission of a television and/or radio signal over two or more networks or two or more stations. The most obvious example would be a major address by the President of the United States which might be carried simultaneously by three television networks (ABC, CBS, NBC), one or more cable networks (CNN, CNBC), and several radio networks." [3]
