FCC chief Tom Wheeler to address NAB Show in Las Vegas

http://www.indiantelevision.com/sites/drupal7.indiantelevision.co.in/files/styles/smartcrop_800x800/public/images/regulators-images/2015/02/23/Federal-Communications-Commission.jpg?itok=SMH4zT5L

NEW DELHI: Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman Tom Wheeler is expected to provide insights into the FCC’s policy and regulatory objectives related to broadcasting, technology and communications law generally at the 2015 Show of the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) in Las Vegas.

The address will be held on 15 April.

“This is a great opportunity for NAB Show attendees to hear first-hand from the FCC Chairman on the FCC’s progress on the TV spectrum incentive auction and a host of other items currently under consideration at the Commission,” said NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith.

Wheeler became the 31st chairman of the Federal Communications Commission on 4 November, 2013. He was appointed by President Barack Obama and unanimously confirmed by the United States Senate.

For over three decades, Wheeler has been involved with new telecommunications networks and services, experiencing the revolution in telecommunications as a policy expert, an advocate, and a businessman. As an entrepreneur, he started or helped start multiple companies offering innovative cable, wireless and video communications services. He is the only person to be selected to both the Cable Television Hall of Fame and The Wireless Hall of Fame, a fact that caused President Obama to nickname Wheeler “The Bo Jackson of Telecom.”

Prior to joining the FCC, Wheeler was managing director at Core Capital Partners, a venture capital firm investing in early stage Internet Protocol (IP)-based companies. He served as president and CEO of Shiloh Group, LLC, and co-founded SmartBrief, the internet’s largest electronic information service for vertical markets.

From 1976 to 1984, Wheeler was associated with the National Cable Television Association (NCTA), where he was president and CEO from 1979 to 1984. Following NCTA, Wheeler was CEO of several high tech companies, including the first company to offer high speed delivery of data to home computers and the first digital video satellite service. From 1992 to 2004, Wheeler served as president and CEO of the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA).

Wheeler is a graduate of The Ohio State University and the recipient of its Alumni Medal.
