Chairman Pai Announces His Intent to Depart FCC.

Ajit Pai announced this morning that he will be stepping down as Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission on Jan. 20. In a statement he called his time at the agency “the honor of a lifetime” and noted that on his watch the Commission adopted more than 25 proposals to update media regulations. Pai, 47, was appointed by President Obama to fill one of the Republican-controlled seats. In 2017, when President Trump was sworn in, he turned to Pai to take over the agency. Pai’s departure will allow President-elect Joe Biden to name a new head of the FCC.
