NRB Salutes Departing FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski

Manassas, VA–In response to today’s announcement that Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski will be departing from the Commission in the weeks ahead, Dr. Frank Wright, President & CEO of NRB, expressed thanks for his service and best wishes in his next steps.

“Chairman Genachowski has been a fine leader of the Commission. I am particularly grateful for his efforts to remove the terrible 'Fairness Doctrine' from the FCC books once and for all, as well as for his words of support for a proposal, now pending before the FCC, that noncommercial broadcasters be able to use some airtime to help third-party charities.  NRB is grateful for his leadership and wishes him the best in the future,” said Dr. Wright.
