Baker to Keynote PowerBrokers Breakfast

Former FCC Commissioner Will Help Honor Cable Leaders

Former FCC commissioner Meredith Attwell Baker will give the keynote address at the Oct. 29 PowerBrokers Breakfast in Washington.

Baker is currently SVP, government affairs for NBCUniversal.

PowerBrokers is sponsored by the Washington/Baltimore chapter of Women in Cable Telecommunications and honors the Touchstones of Leadership Award winners, which include policymakers and regulators saluted for their work on behalf of consumers and business.

Baker knows all about such work. In addition to serving at the FCC, Baker is the former acting head of the National Telecommunications & Information Administration, where she helped oversee the digital TV converter box program that insured that over-the-air households with analog TV's would not be disenfranchised.
