New FCC chair to speak at NAB 201714 March 2017
Ajit Pai, the new chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, will speak at this year’s NAB Show on Tuesday 25 April.
Pai was appointed chairman by President Trump in January.
The address is expected to provide insight into the FCC’s policy and regulatory objectives related to broadcasting, technology and communications law and regulation.
Pai previously served as commissioner at the FCC, appointed by President Obama and confirmed unanimously by the United States Senate in May 2012.
“We know from his tenure as FCC commissioner that Ajit Pai believes deeply in the value of free and local broadcasting,” said NAB president and CEO Gordon Smith.
“His appearance at NAB Show represents a tremendous opportunity for attendees to hear first-hand about his regulatory philosophy and priorities.”
