Bush names FCC chairman

Published on .

President Bush Monday named Federal Communications Commissioner Michael J. Powell as commission chairman, a widely expected move. Mr. Powell, a Republican, replaces Bill Kennard, who last week resigned from the commission. Mr. Powell has served on the commission for more than two years and had once been chief of staff in the anti-trust department of the Department of Defense. He is the son of Secretary of State Colin Powell.
