Comcast Hires Former FCC Commissioner

April 28, 2011 -

Comcast announced today that it has hired former Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) Commissioner Rachelle Chong as Regional Vice President of Government Affairs for California. The announcement was made by Curt Henninger, Regional Senior Vice President for Comcast California.

Chong will report directly to Henninger, and will oversee all aspects of Comcast's governmental affairs activities, as well as all cable and telecommunications policy matters, throughout the state. She will be based in the company's Livermore, California office, and replaces Johnnie Giles who was recently named Executive Director of External Affairs at Comcast's corporate headquarters in Philadelphia.

Chong was appointed to the FCC by President Clinton in May of 1994, and served on the FCC until November, 1997. While at the FCC, Chong worked on the implementation of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, digital television transition rules, children's television, the first spectrum auction rules, and services rules for many new wireless services.

Obviously, Comcast hired Chong for intimate knowledge of telecommunication rules and regulations.

Why are none of our congressmen doing anything about regulatory capture? It's such an obvious problem and an easy win with voters...

Wonderkarpfor some reason in the back of my head, I feel like the next Ninja Turtles movie will be good....maybe its cause of the pics I saw of Bebop and Rocksteady, or the casting of a good actor as Shredder. I dunno. It'll probably suck. More Megan Fox "Acting"05/29/2015 - 11:43am

IronPatriotIvresse, you are right that gamergate is dead, but as you can see people here rush to try to beat life back into it if the innocent people they hate get mentioned.05/29/2015 - 11:24am

WonderkarpOn KIA these days, they're mostly talking about Ian Miles Cheongs Apology, the stupid Polygon review of Witcher 3, and discussion similar to our own here about Hatred05/29/2015 - 11:19am
TechnogeekIvresse: You're saying that a video game released as a desparate cash-in attempt on some cultural element is mediocre at best? Surely this has no precedent in the history of the medium!05/29/2015 - 11:17am

Wonderkarpwell the only thing going on right now with Gamergate other than calling out some articles is the SPJ is going to hold a Debate in August between Those Pro and those Anti.05/29/2015 - 11:13am
IvresseIs anyone here even caring about the whole Gamergate bollocks going on anyway? People these days are more likely to be worried about not being able to fly in World of Warcraft anymore... :-/05/29/2015 - 11:10am
KaylaKazeThanks for that TB video link. I'm not so worried about Hatred now since the game looks so horrible.05/29/2015 - 11:06am

IronPatriotIs everyone enjoying the latest gamergate hypocrisy? Allum Bokhari claimed his "poll" showed gamergate was liberal, but his Brietbart article calls gamergate "conservative." #busted #gamerFAILgate05/29/2015 - 10:41am

E. Zachary KnightFinished KungFury. Of the two short films I watched yesterday and today, I think I liked Predator: Dark Ages more. But Kung Fury has its cheesy charm and was quite enjoyable.05/29/2015 - 10:23am
IvresseTotalbiscuit just posted a wtf is... vid of Hatred. Pretty much expected: a mediocre shooter at best that will probaby bore gamers rather than turn them into mass-murdering psychos http://bit.ly/1KCwNE205/29/2015 - 10:15am
Wonderkarpor hell, even take the general concept and try to replicate it with new hallways and floors and make a full game out of it. I'd pay just to keep the original spooky hallway alone05/29/2015 - 9:35am
WonderkarpIf they were smart, they would just change the ending "Silent Hills" Teaser and keep the game out on PS4 as a Peace Offering. It stands on its own.05/29/2015 - 9:34am
