Quello quitting FCC after 23 years

Published on .

FCC Commissioner Jim Quello told Electronic Media, a sister publication of Ad Age, that on May 1 he'll announce his plans to leave the Federal Communications Commission on June 1. Mr. Quello is negotiating with Michigan State University for a teaching position in broadcast management. The commissioner, an outspoken supporter of broadcasters and who is often at odds with FCC Chairman Reed Hundt, will complete his 23rd year at the agency in April. Mr. Quello can legally keep his position through December 1997 and would consider doing so if the Clinton administration urges him to stay on, he said.
