Powell to 'Decompress' at Aspen Institute

Like his predecessors Bill Kennard and Reed Hundt, outgoing FCC Chairman Michael Powell will join the Aspen Institute, a Washington think tank, for a few months once he leaves the agency.

He told reporters he intends to leave the FCC this week and described the three-month period as a senior fellow with the group as a good opportunity to "decompress" after his nearly eight years at the commission. He will advise the communications and society program on leadership, communications policy and program activities and operations.
