FCC Chairman TOM WHEELER has appointed Deputy Chief Economist JONATHAN LEVY as Acting Chief Economist. LEVY fills the post left vacant by the departure of DAVID WATERMAN.
“The chief economist occupies a very important role at the Commission. We have been very fortunate in recent years to have had very talented economists in-house as crucial advisors,” said WHEELER. “I appreciate JONATHAN’s willingness to continue his work with the Commission and I especially thank DAVID for his hard work and valued counsel on a wide variety of policy issues over the last year. I have appreciated his insights on many of the most important issues the Commission has considered.”
