WASHINGTON, April 15, 2010 -- Blair Levin, who became the chief architect behind the Federal Communication's National Broadband Plan as director of the FCC Omnibus Broadband Initiative will leave the agency following the first week in May, according to a commission press release.
Levin is headed to the Aspen Institute, where he will take up residence as a Communications and Society Fellow. Chairman Julius Genachowski said Levin was "masterful in providing wisdom to the Commission about how technology and market trends interact with the nation’s public policy agenda." Levin said he was "pleased" to join the Aspen team. “There I can reflect on the impact of the National Broadband Plan and particularly its application to the international arena,” he said.
Each of the three former chairmen of the FCC - William Kennard, Michael Powell, and Kevin Martin - have joined the Aspen Institute following their terms as chairmen.
