STATEMENT OF COMMISSIONER ROBERT M. McDOWELL ON
SELECTION OF MICHAEL POWELL AS HEAD OF NCTA"I congratulate my friend, Michael Powell, on taking over the helm of NCTA. I have known him
since he first became a commissioner in 1997. Whether serving at the Commission both as a
commissioner and as chairman; advising the investment community; leading the board of our
shared alma mater, William and Mary; practicing law; or serving in uniform with distinction,
Michael has always exhibited the best attributes of leadership. His intellect and vision will serve
NCTA and its members well as the cable industry faces increasing competitive and regulatory
challenges. I look forward to working with him in his new capacity."
