FCC Chairman Kevin Martin to Resign Jan. 20

Article Comments  24

Today Kevin Martin, Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, announced that he will resign on January 20. He is expected to be replaced by President-Elect Barack Obama's nominee, Julius Genachowski. The change in guard comes because the law states that the party controlling the White House (in this case, the Democrats) gets to pick the chairman and three of the commission's five spots. Kevin Martin is a republican, and was expected to vacate the office.

What remains to be seen, however, is if the wireless industry going forward can regain competitive balance from the egregious accumulation & consolidation the FCC permitted during the Martin regime. I fear, unfortunately, that the damage is permanent.
