Washington, DC - Nov 18, 2001 - The FCC currently has one open commissioner's seat, which was held by Gloria Tristani. Democratic Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle has recommended his legislative assistant, Jonathan Adelstein, to the White House for consideration as a nominee as FCC commissioner. If confirmed, he would serve the remainder of Tristani's term, which ends in mid-2003.

Several professional organizations and lobbying groups endorse the Adelstein recommendation, including the CTIA and the NAB.
