The NAB Show in Las Vegas is on the calendars of FCC Commissioners Jonathan Adelstein (D) and Deborah Tate Taylor (R). They’ll be the featured guests at the Regulatory Face-off pegged for Tax Day, 4/15/08. But you don’t need to wait until then to see them outside the walls of The Portals in SW Washington. This Friday, 3/14/08, they will be joined by colleagues Michael Copps (D) and Robert McDowell (R) at the American Women in Radio & Television 2008 Leadership Summit & Business Conference. That event kicks off Thursday 4/13/08 and runs through Saturday. Also on the playbill are Candy Crowley, Bonnie Press, Henry Rivera, Suze Orman and others.
RBR/TVBR observation: Perhaps they will use this forum to make a joint pitch to Congress from afar to just go ahead and process their renominations to the Commission. It looks like they are going to be hung up due to maneuvering tied to the possible changing of the guard at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW. If Tate has any questions, she need only lean over and ask Adelstein, who has been there and done that more than once.
