Who’s Next at the FCC?

With a new president comes new legal appointments. It’s already expected that Kevin Martin, a Republican, will be stepping out when Obama is sworn in. The two sitting Democrat commissioners are Adelstein and Copps. Which one of them could be appointed to be the chairman?

If I had to pick one, it would be Adelstein. Based on his comments and history at the FCC I think he has a better record of being broadcaster friendly.

Copps seems to have good intentions, but his actions always consider the broadcaster second or third. While I agree that public interest should be served, Copps seems to have an unrealistic view of what the public really wants.

I also wonder what other changes will be made at the FCC.

We’ll know soon enough.
