Last fall, the FCC held a hearing on the effects of Hurricane Katrina on communications in the Gulf region. Now that effort has spawned an independent panel to look into the impact of Hurricane Katrina on communications networks and media infrastructure.
FCC Chairman Kevin Martin has appointed panel members; they will recommend ways to improve disaster preparedness, network reliability and communications among first responders by June 15.
Radio broadcasters appointed to the panel are Steve Davis, senior vice president of engineering for Clear Channel Radio and Marty Hadfield, vice president of engineering, Entercom.
The panel’s first meeting is set for Jan. 30; participants will hear statements from panel members about the impact of the hurricane on their company or their industry communications infrastructure as well as issues on which the panel should focus.
