FCC Chairman Michael Powell today announced that he will resign from the position after the Commission's March 10 meeting. Under Powell's pro big business and anti regulation stance, a number of significant wireless mergers, including Cingular's buyout of AT&T Wireless were approved. However despite complaints from carriers, the FCC also mandated Local Number Portability under his term. No replacement has been chosen yet, but analysts believe the FCC will continue its deregulatory course under whomever takes the reins next.

Maybe the FCC will appoint someone w/o a stick up their arse.

Long Live Howard Stern,KING OF ALL MEDIA.
😁 😁 😁
Awww, you said arse. Better hope the FCC doesn't come after you. Let me restate for you:

Maybe the FCC will appoint someone without a stick up their michael powell.

F the CC.
🤭 You wanted to say a bad word. 🤣 Your probably next on thier list now. Still im jumping on the bandwagon. 😎
Im in total agreement with you guys! Like Howard Stern said, Michael probably got his job cause his daddy Colin asked Bush to give it to him...

In all seriousness, who actually appoints the head of the FCC?
How sad... all because Howard Stern soesn't know when to quit, and whines like a little baby for violating the rules. Oh, and newsflash people, Stern was being fined by the FCC long before Powell came along, and with good reason. I think that Powel...

Ever think of this...?

All of you are overy-joyed that Michael Powell is no longer chairman of the FCC. But for all you know the next chairman might have a stick 10x bigger up his/her ass and then you'll be wanting Michael Powell back.
true, but did you ever think that it's not the size of the stick but whether the person uses it on everyone (alomst) equally. From Oprah, to Howard, to Janet Jackson, etc.
