Congressional Republicans reportedly are honing in on naming their picks for two open FCC commissioner seats.
Several reliable media outlets say Meredith Atwell Baker, former acting head of the National Telecommunications & Information Administration, will fill Debi Tate’s vacant chair, while Robert McDowell stands to be renominated for his seat.
Confirmation hearings for Barack Obama’s chosen additions – Julius Genachowski as FCC chairman and Mignon Clyburn as a third Democratic commissioner – have been put on hold as Senate Republicans drag their feet on naming names.
It’s not known when Genachowski might step in as head of the FCC.
