Personnel Changes at FCC
Broadcasting and Cable reports that on Friday FCC announced the following personnel changes:
- Acting FCC Chairman Copps has brought in Blair Levin, former FCC chief of staff under Democratic Chairman Reed Hundt, to coordinate the development of a national broadband plan.
- Media Bureau Chief Monica Desai moved to special advisor to the general counsel. Robert Radcliffe will serve as acting chief.
- David Hunt, assistant, IG, for investigations, will become acting inspector general with the retirement of Kent Nilsson after 30 years at the FCC
- Mary Beth Richards, deputy general counsel, has also been named acting managing director.
Frankly, I can't find any of these on FCC's website, but Broadcasting & Cable has always been very well plugged in.
UPDATE: Changes now posted on FCC site.
