The School of Media Arts & Studies is pleased to announce that Dr. George Korn was recently an invited participant at FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler’s introductory meeting with public interest groups at FCC headquarters in Washington, DC. At their November meeting, Wheeler solicited input from attendees on their concerns and viewpoints on key communication issues, and laid out his vision for how the agency will operate under his leadership.
Additionally, Rev. Jesse Jackson and Korn (an advisor to Rev. Jackson) met with FCC Chairman Wheeler at the Minority Media and Telecommunications Coalition conference in Washington, DC in January regarding diversity issues in media and spectrum ownership. They also met with minority business owners on developing strategies for inclusion.
