Verizon's Davidson Retiring

Peter Davidson, senior VP of federal government relations for Verizon, is retiring at the end of the year.

Davidson has headed up Verizon's federal legislative team for over a decade, and also heads up internal policy and state and local outreach to national organizations.

Before joining Verizon in 2003, Davidson was general counsel to the U.S. Trade Representative in the George W. Bush Administration and was general counsel to former House majority leader Richard Armey.

His resume also includes congressional relations for USWEST and Qwest.

No word on a replacement, except that it would come "shortly."

Contributing editor John Eggerton has been an editor and/or writer on media regulation, legislation and policy for over four decades, including covering the FCC, FTC, Congress, the major media trade associations, and the federal courts. In addition to Multichannel News and Broadcasting + Cable, his work has appeared in Radio World, TV Technology, TV Fax, This Week in Consumer Electronics, Variety and the Encyclopedia Britannica.
