A former FCC chair is now advising Obama on intelligence

August 29, 2014

Just months after he left the Obama administration, former Federal Communications Commission chair Julius Genachowski is heading back into it.

This time, Genachowski will be taking up a post on President Obama's intelligence advisory board, a small panel that provides counsel on America's spy agencies. Genachowski is among Obama's longest-serving advisers; a classmate of Obama's at Harvard Law School, he was tapped in 2008 to lead the then-senator's tech policy working group during the 2008 presidential campaign.
