Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman Tom Wheeler will provide the “FCC Keynote” at the 2014 NAB Show in Las Vegas, the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) announced Tuesday.
The address, which will be held Tuesday, April 8, 9:00-10:00 a.m., is expected to provide insight into the chairman’s views on broadcasting and what his expectations are on the regulatory front in the coming years.
“Broadcasting has a lot at stake when it comes to actions taken by the FCC,” said NAB president and CEO Gordon Smith. “We look forward to hearing from chairman Wheeler about his views on spectrum auctions, ownership regulation, and any number of issues shaping our industry.”
