Former FCC Head Powell Appointed Head of Cable Group

The National Cable and Telecommunications Association said it has appointed former Federal Communications Commission Chairman Michael Powell as its president and chief executive officer.

The Washington-based trade group, with members including Comcast Corp. and Time Warner Cable Inc., made the announcement today in an e-mailed news release.

Powell, 47, a Republican, was chairman of the FCC from 2001 to 2005. He succeeds Kyle McSlarrow, who was hired this month by Comcast/NBC Universal to manage public policy and business operations in Washington.

Powell is a senior adviser with Providence Equity Partners.
