Powell Selects New Chief of Staff

Two days after his chief of staff announced her departure, FCC Chairman Michael Powell has selected a replacement. Powell intends to appoint Bryan Tramont as the agency’s chief of staff.
Tramont is currently serving as Powell’s senior legal advisor, advising him generally on FCC agenda and circulate issues, and specifically on wireless, international, technology, and consumer issues. Tramont also served in the same position to Commissioners Kathleen Abernathy and Harold Furchtgott-Roth.
Tramont replaces Marsha MacBride, who had served in the position since Powell became chairman in 2001, and who announced on Monday she was leaving the agency to go into the private sector.
