CBS Radio’s Fernandez Named To FCC Advisory Committee
CBS Radio President & CEO Andre Fernandez has been selected by FCC Chairman Ajit Pai to serve on the Commission’s Advisory Committee on Diversity and Digital Empowerment (ACDDE). The ACDDE’s mission is to provide recommendations to the FCC on how to empower disadvantaged communities and accelerate the entry of small businesses, including those owned by women and minorities, into the media, digital news and information, and audio and video programming industries.

“I am pleased to see the Advisory Committee on Diversity and Digital Empowerment get up and running,” Chairman Pai said.  “All Americans should have the opportunity to participate in the communications marketplace, no matter their race, gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. I hope this committee will help our agency take important steps towards increasing diversity throughout the communications industry and bringing digital opportunity to all Americans.”

The Committee will also make recommendations on how to ensure that disadvantaged communities are not denied the wide range of opportunities made possible by next-generation networks. Fernandez is among a select group of leaders from media and telecom companies, the financial world, civil rights groups, think tanks, public interest groups and trade associations serving on this Advisory Committee.
