STATEMENT FROM FCC CHAIRMAN JULIUS GENACHOWSKI ON THE

DEPARTURE OF EDDIE LAZARUS AS CHIEF OF STAFF

Washington, D.C. – FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski issued the following statement on the
departure of Eddie Lazarus as Chief of Staff:
“No one has done more than Eddie Lazarus to ensure that the FCC meets its vital mission to
harness communications technology to benefit our economy and all Americans. Eddie has
worked tirelessly to refocus the FCC on broadband Internet, and unleash its opportunities.
“His imprint is on so many of our initiatives: USF reform and the creation of the Connect
America Fund; incentive auctions and other innovative policies to free up spectrum for licensed
and unlicensed use; consumer empowerment around “bills shock” and increased consumer
protection. These and other initiatives to grow our economy and benefit our citizens would not
have been possible without Eddie.
“Among Eddie’s accomplishments is the strengthening of the FCC’s great staff. Eddie has done
so much toward ensuring that the FCC is a model for excellence in government, and when he
departs he’ll leave a strong and experienced staff.
“We’ll miss Eddie deeply, but will continue to benefit every day from his leadership, strength
and brilliance.”
