Kevin Martin's last day at the FCC is the 20th
Of course we saw this coming with Obama's inauguration right around the corner, but now Kevin Martin has sent his official letter of resignation to his buddy George. This makes his official last day as chairman of the FCC January 20th. He has had the position for four years, and oversaw many of the decisions made by the agency that impacted us like the DTV transition date and the lack of progress of a two way digital cable solution. There's no word on what the eight year veteran of the FCC will do next though, and of course we'll also have to continue to wait for the official appointment of his successor.
