The musical chairs continued Friday at the Federal Communications Commission. Chairman Julius Genachowski announced that he has appointed Zachary Katz as his new chief counsel.

Katz, who currently serves as Genachowski's legal adviser, will replace Rick Kaplan, who now heads the agency's Wireless Telecommunications Bureau. Genachowski also announced that current legal advisor Sherrese Smith will become senior counsel, while Amy Levine was tapped to be a legal adviser.

"I am delighted that these outstanding professionals will take on new roles and responsibilities as we continue advancing the Commission's vital agenda to generate jobs, innovation and economic growth on behalf of the American people," Genachowski said in a statement. "Each of them brings unique, deep and diverse strengths to our work."

Katz joined the FCC in 2009 after working in the White House Counsel's Office. Before beginning at the FCC, Smith was general counsel for Washington Post Digital, and Levine came from the office of former Rep. Rick Boucher, D-Va.

Republican FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell also announced a staff addition Friday. Erin McGrath, who currently works in the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau's Mobility Division, will join McDowell's staff as acting legal adviser for media issues.
