STATEMENT OF COMMISSIONER MEREDITH ATWELL BAKER ON
SELECTION OF MICHAEL POWELL AS HEAD OF NCTAI congratulate Michael Powell on his new position. As the cable industry and
communications industries are going through a digital and IP transition, it is critical to have
forward-thinking and visionary leaders. With Michael, we are all lucky to have someone of his
caliber back in the policymaking world on a day-to-day basis. Congratulations also to NCTA on
doing the near impossible, finding a worthy successor to Kyle McSlarrow. I look forward to
working with Michael and Kyle in their new capacities.
