FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski Steps Down
Julius Genachowski, who has served as FCC Chairman since 2009, is stepping down. The FCC has announced on its website that Genachowski will be leaving his position "in the coming weeks;" an official meeting will be held later this morning. The Chairman's term would have been over in July, but it's been rumored over the past week that he would step down early.
Before his appointment, Genachowski had a long history in Washington: in the 1980s, he worked for then-Representative Charles Schumer (D-NY) and served as staff for the committee investigating the Iran-Contra
