This FCC Commissioner Can Prepare You For 2021



How America votes in the 2020 U.S. presidential elections will reshape the FCC no matter what happens. If President Trump is reelected, the exit of a big radio deregulation proponent is all but certain. If Joe Biden wins, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai will likely be succeeded by one of two Democratic Commissioners.

To kick off the third week of the Hispanic Radio LIVE series, Democratic FCC Commissoner Geoffrey Starks will offer an exclusive look inside the agency, sharing information of importance and interest to all radio industry leaders – in particular those serving Hispanic consumers. Hispanic Radio LIVE begins October 1 runs for 5 consecutive weeks, beginning at 11:30 am Eastern every Thursday.


THURSDAY, OCTOBER 15 — 11:30 am Eastern

From the appeal of the FCC’s cross-ownership rule remand nix to the Supreme Court to all-digital AM radio, there’s much at stake for those serving Spanish-speaking audiences.
Register now, and set a calendar reminder for this timely session.
Democratic FCC Commissioner Geoffrey Starks took the oath of office as an FCC Commissioner on January 30, 2019. He was previously an Assistant Chief in the Enforcement Bureau of the Commission. He has also served as a senior counsel at the U.S. Justice Department and has also served as a private sector attorney, at the prestigious Washington, D.C. law firm Williams & Connolly.
Starks shifted from the DOJ to the FCC in 2015 to help tackle waste, fraud and abuse in Universal Service Fund programs. Earlier in his career Starks served as staff to the state Democrats — at a time when Barack Obama was a little-known Illinois state senator.
