FCC Chairman Powell has appointed International Association of Audio Information Services member Mike Duke to the commission's Consumer Advisory Committee to represent the interests of blind and visually impaired persons, licensed radio amateur operators and management of audio information services for the blind.
Duke is director at Radio Reading Service of Mississippi, an eight-station, statewide network headquartered at WMPN in Jackson, Miss.
"Mike is an ideal candidate for this post, as he has been involved with IAAIS for many years and is an avid ham radio enthusiast," said David Noble, chair of the IAAIS Government Relations Committee. "He is in a good position to help the FCC be mindful of the need to make new HD radios accessible to people with disabilities."
The committee had worked as the FCC's Consumer/Disability Telecommunications Advisory Committee. Powell has rechartered it to reflect a broader scope of responsibilities.
