Adelstein Begins Sorting Staff

Adelstein Begins Sorting Staff

The newest FCC Commissioner, Jonathan Adelstein, has made staffing changes. Barry Ohlson will be his permanent wireless legal advisor, and Johanna Mikes will be his permanent media advisor, effective March 31, replacing Sarah Whitesell, who has served as interim media advisor since the commissioner took office in December.
Ohlson will continue to advise Adelstein on spectrum, technology, and international issues. Prior to joining the commissioner’s office, Ohlson was chief of the Policy Division in the FCC’s Wireless Telecommunications Bureau.
Mikes most recently has been Legislative Counsel for U.S. Rep. Rick Boucher, D-Va., advising him on communications and intellectual property issues before the House Commerce and House Judiciary Committees, and assisting him in co-chairing the Congressional Internet Caucus.
