Tate is new to the agency, coming off a six-year term as director of the Tennessee Regulatory Authority, where she served as Chairman from 2003-2004. Tate’s FCC term ends June 30, 2007. She was nominated to fill the remainder of former Chairman Michael Powell’s term.
She pledged to “be a voice for families and consumers “and bring a spirit of consensus and bi-partisanship to the FCC.
