WASHINGTON — Federal Communications Commissioner Michael O’Rielly will make an appearance at the 2018 Radio Show, the National Association of Broadcasters announced this week.

He will participate in a Thursday session focused on radio policy. According to a press release, he’ll “discuss his outlook on regulation of the radio industry and what licensees can expect in the near future,” as well as “media ownership regulations, pirate radio enforcement, spectrum policy and the importance of local service.”

O’Rielly has served on the FCC for nearly five years, during which time he has advocated for reducing regulation and increasing government transparency. Prior to his work at the commission, he worked on the Hill for nearly 20 years as a staffer in both the House of Representatives and the Senate.

The Radio Show is produced by the Radio Advertising Bureau and the NAB and is scheduled for Sept. 25-28 at the Hilton Bonnet Creek in Orlando, Fla.
