Before he became the new Media Bureau Chief, Bill Lake was involved with shepherding the DTV transition.

In a session at the NAB Radio Show in Philadelphia on Thursday, Lake promised his staff would try to "turn to the power increase sooner rather than later."

He said it's a relief the commission doesn't face a hard enaction date for radio like it did in television, and said of IBOC in general: "We want to promote it and encourage its adoption."

Recognizing the pending power increase proceeding, now awaiting action by the commission for over a year, he said the FCC would get to it "as soon as we can. It's not going to languish."
