Genachowski to Deliver Keynote at NAB on April 12th

March 9, 2011

The chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, Julius Genachowski, will deliver a keynote speech during the 2011 NAB Show in Las Vegas. Genachowski's remarks will be made during the FCC Chairman's Breakfast on Tuesday, April 12. "The FCC is currently considering many political and regulatory issues that will have a lasting impact on the broadcast industry," said NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith. "We look forward to hearing from Chairman Genachowski as he outlines his vision for communications policy and the opportunities for broadcasters in the fast-changing digital world."

Genachowski served as chief counsel to FCC Chairman Reed Hundt and as special counsel to then-FCC General Counsel William Kennard, who was later named FCC Chairman. A Harvard Law School graduate, Genachowski also worked as a law clerk at the U.S. Supreme Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals. As previously announced, the NAB Show will also include a "Washington Showcase" featuring FCC Commissioner Meredith Attwell Baker. Held Tuesday, April 12, the session will examine the latest regulatory issues affecting communications industry stakeholders.
