Genachowski To Keynote At NAB


Federal Communications Commission chairman Julius Genachowski will deliver a keynote speech to the National Association of Broadcasters convention in Las Vegas on April 12, according to NAB.

The speech will come at the annual chairman's breakfast.

"The FCC is currently considering many political and regulatory issues that will have a lasting impact on the broadcast industry," said Gordon Smith, NAB president and CEO in announcing the speech. "We look forward to hearing from Chairman Genachowski as he outlines his vision for communications policy and the opportunities for broadcasters in the fast-changing digital world."

Those issues include spectrum reclamation, retransmission consent and media ownership rules, all of which are teed up at the FCC.

FCC commissioner Meredith Attwell Baker will also be making an appearance at a Washington showcase, also slated for April 12.
