FCC Welcomes New Commissioners

May 14, 2012

A bipartisan pair of Federal Communications commissioners were sworn into office on Monday, making the commission complete for the first time in nearly a year.

Jessica Rosenworcel, a former Senate Commerce Committee senior communications counsel, will fill a Democratic seat on the FCC and Ajit Pai, a former FCC aide, will fill a Republican seat.

The Senate voted to confirm the two nominees a week ago. Meredith Attwell Baker, one of two Republicans on the five-member panel, left to work for Comcast in June last year. Democratic commissioner Michael Copps retired at the end of 2011.

According to the FCC website, Pai has brought on Matthew Berry as his chief of staff. Berry, a former FCC general counsel, comes from Patton Boggs LLP

Pai has also hired FCC litigation specialist Lori Alexiou as a confidential assistant. Alexiou served Baker and former FCC Chairman Kevin Martin in a similar role.

Both new commissioners will join the rest of the commission in testifying before the Senate Commerce Committee on Wednesday.
