Today the Obama Administration nominated Tom Wheeler to be Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission after current Chair Julius Genachowski vacates the post in the weeks to come. Commissioner Mignon Clyburn will serve as the acting FCC Chairperson when Genachowski departs the FCC, and will hold that position until Wheeler's nomination is approved. "Tom will be a great FCC Chairman, and I urge his swift confirmation," said Genachowski. "I can attest to Tom's commitment to harness the power of communications technology to improve people's lives, to drive our global competitiveness, and to advance the public interest. The FCC's role has never been more essential, and with Tom's deep policy expertise and his first-hand experience as a technology investor, he is a superb choice to advance the FCC's mission of promoting innovation, investment, competition, and consumer protection." Congress must approve Obama's selection.
