FCC's Ferree moves to public TV as COO

Ken Ferree, the FCC media bureau chief under former FCC Chairman Michael Powell, has moved to public broadcasting. Ferree is joining the Corporation for Public Broadcasting as its chief operating officer.

His plan would have ended the transition to digital TV by 2009.
