Prospects that National Association of Broadcasters acting chief lobbyist
John Orlando will become the trade group's permanent Capitol Hill leader
brightened Wednesday when his main rival took a job at Fluor Corp.
David Marventano, staff director for House Energy and Commerce Committee
chairman Billy Tauzin (R-La.), becomes senior vice president of government
affairs for the California-based company June 1.
Tauzin had pressed the NAB to name his aide to its lobbying post.
Orlando is supported by his former boss, Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.), the
committee's top Democrat and former chairman.
