Jeffrey Eisenach has been appointed to head President-elect Donald Trump’s FCC transition team. He’s also considered to be a candidate to head the government agency along with Commissioner Ajit Pai.
Eisenach has authored detailed studies supporting deregulation of the Commission’s ownership rules and is a big supporter of free markets. It’s believed Eisenach is in favor of loosening ownership limits in favor of allowing broadcasters the benefits of scale. Eisenach is the Senior Vice President at NERA Economic Consulting.
About Eisenach heading the FCC transition team, NAB Executive VP Dennis Wharton tells Radio Ink, “Jeffrey Eisenach has a breadth of knowledge of communications issues that makes him a smart choice for the FCC transition team. NAB looks forward to working with him, along with the current FCC Commissioners, in assisting with a smooth transition.”
