Both in service to local communities and influencing major public policy affecting our industry, Texas broadcasters showed up in a BIG way over the past year!
Now it’s time to honor our partners in service and celebrate our shared achievements with the Bonner McLane Public Service Awards and Lone Star Leader Awards.
FCC Commissioner Michael O’Rielly joins TAB Past Chairman Ben Downs for an insightful conversation on the FCC’s ongoing modernization and deregulatory efforts as we celebrate the leadership of 12 local Radio and TV stations in advancing their communities’ well-being.
O’Rielly was nominated for a seat on the Federal Communications Commission by President Barack Obama on August 1, 2013 and was confirmed unanimously by the United States Senate on October 29, 2013.
He was sworn into office on November 4, 2013. On January 29, 2015, he was sworn into office for a new term, following his re-nomination by the President and confirmation by the United States Senate.

He worked in the Republican Whip’s Office since 2010, as an Advisor from 2010 to 2012 and Deputy Chief of Staff and Policy Director from 2012 to 2013 for U.S. Senator Jon Kyl.
