Senate Communications Subcommittee Firming Up May 14 Video Hearing

NCTA's Michael Powell, NAB's Gordon Smith Expected to Testify

It looks like the Senate Communications Subcommittee's hearing on the state of video, which was tentatively scheduled for May 14, has gotten a little less tentative.

The Senate Commerce Committee Communications Subcommittee has scheduled its planned video oversight hearing for May 14 at 10:30 a.m.-12 p.m., according to a source.

National Association of Broadcasters president Gordon Smith and NCTA president Michael Powell are both expected to testify.

It is one of a series of "state of" hearings announced earlier by Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) new chair of what is expected to be an active subcommittee.
