Wiley Rein’s Media Practice Launches Law Blog

WileyonMedia promises to highlight topics like broadcast regulation

You can add one more legal blog to your regular Web surfing routine.

Wiley Rein’s Media Group has begun WileyonMedia, a blog highlighting news and insights from its attorneys.

Broadcast and multichannel video regulation, media transactions, program content, digital rights, journalism, employment, privacy and happenings at the FCC, the Federal Trade Commission and on Capitol Hill are among the topics covered by the firm’s media law professionals.

Led by Media Practice co-chairs James Bayes and Kathleen Kirby, with support from experienced associates Kathryne Dickerson, Ari Meltzer, and Henry Gola, Wiley Rein’s bench of practitioners plan to keep readers apprised of legal and political developments that affect the media industry.

Former FCC Chairman Richard Wiley heads the firm’s communications practice. He will also be a regular blog contributor. Wiley has been dubbed the “father of high-definition television” and was named among this year’s “Giants of Broadcasting” by the Library of American Broadcasting, according to the firm. His first post offers insight into the “Top Ten Issues” for new FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler.
