WASHINGTON: FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski will address this year’s NAB
Show audience, NAB announced earlier this week. He is scheduled to speak
Monday, April 16 at 2:30 p.m.
Genachowski was appointed to head up the FCC in June of 2009. He
previously served in both the private and public sectors, co-founding LaunchBox
Digital and Rock Creek Ventures and serving as special advisor to General
Genachowski also served as chief counsel to FCC Chairman Reed Hundt and
as special counsel to then-FCC General Counsel William Kennard, who was later
named FCC Chairman.
"We are pleased
Chairman Genachowski will join us again at the NAB Show and look forward to
hearing his perspective on the communications policy issues before the
Commission," said NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith, in a press release.
"With the FCC poised to tackle the incentive auction legislation and many
other critical regulatory issues this year, the Chairman's address presents a
welcome opportunity to engage in productive dialogue on issues that impact the
future of broadcasting."
