C-SPAN to Cover Rosenworcel Renomination Hearing

C-SPAN will cover the 10 a.m. Oct. 28 renomination hearing of Democratic FCC commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel.

Rosenworcel was nominated by President Obama for a second, five-year term on May 22. Her term actually expired in June, but she could serve until the end of 2016 in any event.

The hearing will be available live online at C-SPAN.org rather that on the TV channels.

C-SPAN is a public service funded by cable operators nationwide.
