Senate Communications Subcommittee Firming Up May 14 Video Hearing

NCTA's Michael Powell, NAB's Gordon Smith expected to testify

It looks like the Senate Communications Subcommittee's
hearing on the state of video, which
B&C reported
was tentatively
scheduled for May 14, has gotten a little less tentative.

The Senate Commerce Committee Communications Subcommittee
has scheduled its planned video oversight hearing for May 14 at 10:30 a.m.-12
p.m., according to a source.

National Association of Broadcasters president Gordon Smith
and NCTA president Michael Powell are both expected to testify.

It is one of a series of "state of"
hearings announced
earlier by Sen. Mark Pryor
(D-Ark.) new chair of what is expected to be an
active subcommittee.
