Obama formally announces FCC nomination

As was expected, President Barack Obama has announced his intent to nominate Julius Genachowski to head the FCC. The president cited Genachowski’s diverse and unparalleled experience in communications and technology, with two decades of accomplishment in the private sector and public service. Genachowski formerly worked at the commission as chief counsel to Chairman Reed Hundt, and as special counsel to FCC General Counsel (later Chairman) William Kennard.
