New Republican FCC commissioner Nathan Simington has been recruited to speak to the Interactive Advertising Bureau.
Simington, who was on the team at the National Telecommunications & Information Administration that drafted a petition to the FCC to regulate Web site content, is on the final agenda of speakers for the March 8-12 Annual Leadership Meeting, a virtual summit that will set the organization's policy agenda.
Issues on that agenda include privacy, accountability, and the "deprecation" of third-party cookies.
Simington joins an all-star speaker lineup that includes Dr. Anthony Fauci, House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.)--father of former FCC acting chair Mignon Clyburn--and Stacy Abrams, who helped turn Georgia blue in the last election.
Simington will be batting cleanup, as it were, scheduled to speak Friday, March 12, in the afternoon.
