LOS ANGELES (August 3, 2017) – The Parents Television Council applauded the Senate for confirming Jessica Rosenworcel and Brendan Carr as FCC commissioners.

“We are glad that the Senate approved the nominations of Jessica Rosenworcel and Brendan Carr as FCC commissioners. We trust that they will put the needs of parents and families first as they consider a range of media issues, such as broadcast indecency law enforcement and ensuring that television ratings accurately reflect the content on screen. We look forward to working with them,” said PTC President Tim Winter.

“We urge the Senate to also reconfirm Ajit Pai as Chairman as soon as possible.”
