FCC’s McDowell Adds McGrath To Staff
FCC Commissioner Robert M. McDowell announced Friday that Erin McGrath will be joining his staff as acting legal adviser for media issues.
McGrath has worked at the commission since March 2000, most recently as assistant division chief in the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau’s mobility division. During this time, she engaged in numerous rulemaking proceedings, was instrumental in the review of several major wireless and media transactions, and managed post-auction licensing matters.
She also served as the interim legal adviser to Commission Meredith A. Baker for wireless, international and public safety issues. McGrath received her B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania and her J.D. from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.
Rosemary Harold, who has been legal adviser for media issues to Commissioner McDowell since September 2008, has decided to begin considering other opportunities outside the commission.
