A very short press release from the FCC confirms that Chairman Julius Genachowski will step down from his position in the coming weeks. The FCC regulates interstate and international communications that use radio, television, wire, satellite and cable. It includes four commissioners and one Chairman.
Genachowski was appointed to the Chairman position by President Barack Obama in 2009. During his time as FCC Chairman, Genachowski oversaw the rise of wireless networks and the slowdown of copper-based communications.
According to a Wall Street Journal report, there are four potential candidates to replace Genachowski.
