Genachowski's first FCC meeting today

After attending a broadband stimulus event yesterday with Vice President Joe Biden and others in Wattsburg, Penn., new FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski will lead his first official FCC meeting today in Washington, D.C. The meeting starts at 11:30 a.m. EST.

The discussion is likely to focus on the agency's ongoing development of a national broadband plan, and a digital TV transition update also is on the agenda. The Pennsylvania event yesterday, at which Genachowski called for more public comment on the national plan, reportedly was attended by barely 100 people.

Today's meeting, however, will be streamed online. You can listen to the meeting by registering here.
