Just as the FCC's Broadband Initiative heats up, the program's Exec. Dir. BLAIR LEVIN has announced his exit on MAY 7th to join the ASPEN INSTITUTE as Communications and Society Fellow. LEVIN, former FCC Chief of Staff to then-Chairman REED HUNDT in 1993-97, served on President OBAMA's transition team before rejoining the Commission.
"BLAIR has been masterful in providing wisdom to the Commission about how technology and market trends interact with the nation's public policy agenda," said FCC Chairman JULIUS GENACHOWSKI. "His leadership in raising the quality of work and thought throughout the Commission is beyond measure and I am sure he will continue to make similar contributions for the country while he is at the ASPEN INSTITUTE."
