PTC Congratulates New FCC Appointees 


LOS ANGELES (May 7, 2012) – The Parents Television Council™ congratulated new Federal Communications Commission (FCC) appointees Ajit Varadaraj Pai and Jessica Rosenworcel, who were nominated by the White House last fall. The Senate voted today to confirm the two nominees and they are expected to be sworn in by the end of the week.

“The PTC congratulates Jessica Rosenworcel and Ajit Pai on their confirmation to serve as commissioners of the FCC.  Both bring years of experience inside and outside the agency to bear on the many critical issues facing the commission. We hope their ability to enforce the broadcast decency law will be affirmed by the United States Supreme Court; and we look forward to working with both new commissioners to ensure that the FCC considers the needs of parents and families in furtherance of their congressionally-mandated public interest obligation,” said PTC President Tim Winter.


To speak with a representative from the Parents Television Council, please contact Megan Franko at (703) 859-5054 or Liz Krieger at (703) 683-5004 ext. 120.
