FCC addresses DTV outreach to minorities


A 12/4/07 FCC session to make sure minorities aren’t left behind during the DTV transition is coming into shape. The event will consume the morning hours, and will be hosted by FCC Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau Chief Cathy Seidel. The first of two panels will discuss reaching these communities, and will feature remarks from NAACP’s Hilary Shelton, Michael Sherman, GM of Asian-formatted KTSF-TV and League of United Latin American Citizens Executive Director Brent Wilkes. The second panel will focus on support for these communities, with remarks from Lisa Bland Malone, VP, National Urban League Policy Institute, Betty Valdes of the DC Chapter of REFORMA, a Spanish-language group, and Daniel R. Wilson of the National Caucus and Center on Black Aged.
