Filling the Ranks

Today's announcement by the FCC of key appointments to its Media Bureau continues the trend I noted before of tapping seasoned professionals with an insider's knowledge of communications and how the FCC functions. These folks (some of whom were my former colleagues) know how to get things done within a complex bureaucracy. Thus, they will be critical to carrying out Chairman Martin's agenda for cable and broadcast. At the very least, this continuing trend in FCC staffing bodes well both for engineering a smooth transition on policies that may carry over from the last Commission, and for steering any new courses effectively.
