Tom Wheeler, who has served as Chairman of the FCC for the past three years, announced plans to step down in January. "Serving as FCC Chairman during this period of historic technological change has been the greatest honor of my professional life," said Wheeler in a statement. He thanked the President, who appointed him, as well as the Commission staff who've worked with him during his tenure. "[The Commissioners] achievements have contributed to a thriving communications sector, where robust investment and world-leading innovation continue to drive our economy and meaningful improvements in the lives of the American people. It has been a privilege to help protect consumers, strengthen public safety and cybersecurity, and ensure fast, fair and open networks for all Americans." Wheeler will vacate his post January 20, 2017, which falls one day after president-elect Donald Trump will be sworn into office.
