NAB Statement on Withdrawal of Nomination of FCC Commissioner Michael O'Rielly

WASHINGTON, D.C. – In response to the withdrawal of the nomination of Michael O'Rielly to a five-year term with the Federal Communications Commission, the following statement can be attributed to NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith:

“Mike O’Rielly has been a sterling public servant for as long as I have had the privilege of knowing him, a span of time covering my years in the Senate and throughout my time leading NAB. He is the consummate professional—smart, diligent, honest, and fair. For these and many other reasons, NAB has been proud to support his continued service at the Commission. But for these reasons also, I have every confidence that he will succeed wherever he casts his lot.”
