FCC's Martin to Join Think Tank
At International CES last week, outgoing FCC Chairman Kevin Martin said he had "no plans to announce" about his plans post-chairmanship. Now, he does.
Martin has accepted a position as a senior fellow at the Aspen Institute, a nonpartisan think thank, and will resign from the FCC prior to the expiration of his term in 2011, the AP reported. Martin will remain in Washington in his new role.
The previous three FCC chairman- Democrats Reed Hundt and William Kennard and Republican Michael Powell- have all also gone straight to senior fellowships with Aspen's Communications and Society Program after leaving office
