Pai Appoints Alexander Sanjenis Acting FCC Media Advisor


FCC Chairman Ajit Pai appoints Alexander Sanjenis as his acting media advisor. Sanjenis replaces Alison Nemeth Steger, who is departing the agency. The media advisor advises the Chairman on issues primarily covered by the Media Bureau. The advisor and Bureau staff help lead the agency's work on promoting innovation in the media marketplace and the policy and licensing programs relating to the media industry, including radio, television and cable television.

"I'm grateful that Alex has agreed to take on this important role," said Chairman Pai. "His experience working on a broad range of issues in the Media Bureau will be a tremendous asset as we continue our effort to update our media rules to match the marketplace and technology of today. I also would like to thank Alison for her outstanding work on many complex proceedings over the last two years in my office and wish her all the best as she leaves the Commission."

Sanjenis currently serves as a Legal Advisor in the front office of the Media Bureau, and previously served as a staff attorney in the Media Bureau's Audio Division, where he focused on a wide range of broadcast policy issues including the licensing of translator, noncommercial educational and low power FM stations.
