Seeks comment on local radio-TV ownership rules, dual network rule, and diversity-related proposals
FCC Democratic Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel this week criticized the current proposal for voluntary adoption of the ATSC 3.0 standard (also referred to as “NextGen TV”), and thinks the commission should take more time to consider the ramifications.
The number of FCC commissioners is once again officially back to five as the swearing in ceremony for President Trump nominees Brendan Carr and Jessica Rosenworcel took place on Friday, Aug. 11.
The FCC is back up to full strength, and Chairman Ajit Pai expressed pleasure that the Senate has confirmed Brendan Carr and Jessica Rosenworcel.
After some reports had hinted at the possibility, President Trump has said that he intends to nominated Jessica Rosenworcel to a five-year term and a return engagement as a Democratic FCC commissioner.
