STATEMENT OF FCC CHAIRMAN MICHAEL POWELL ON
WHITE HOUSE ANNOUNCEMENT ON FCC COMMISSIONER APPOINTMENTS


I am pleased that the President has moved forward today to announce his new FCC Commissioner appointments.

Each of the three nominees Kathleen Abernathy, Michael Copps and Kevin Martin if confirmed by the Senate, will bring important experience and expertise to the Commission and I welcome the opportunity to carry out the responsibilities of the FCC with them.
