Martin Names Gregg Media Bureau Chief

Federal Communications Commission chairman Kevin Martin Friday appointed communications lawyer Donna Gregg as chief of the Media Bureau, the division that oversees broadcasters and cable operators.

"Donna brings a wealth of experience and expertise on media issues to the [FCC]. I have long been impressed by her intellect and engaging personality, and I am grateful that she has agreed to continue her commitment to public service by returning to the [FCC]," Martin said in a prepared statement.

Gregg, whose start date was not announced, is vice president of legal and regulatory affairs and general counsel of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. The CPB's acting CEO is Kenneth Ferree, who headed the Media Bureau under FCC chairman Michael Powell. Years ago, Gregg was an FCC staff attorney.

Martin also announced that Roy Stewart, a 40-year FCC veteran, will serve as Gregg's senior deputy chief, and Deborah Klein will serve as deputy chief. Klein has been acting chief since Ferree's departure in March.
