Hear my speech:

I spoke after Steven Wald­man, Senior Advi­sor to FCC Chair­man Julius Gena­chows­ki, and for­mer nation­al edi­tor for US News & World Report and Michael Copps, for­mer FCC com­mis­sion­er and senior advi­sor for the Com­mon Cause Media and Democ­ra­cy Reform Ini­tia­tive.  You may hear the entire pro­gram here:–03-11_next_round_of_fcc_consolidation_rules_newsmaker.mp3
