Will take new position as policy advisor for innovation

By John Eggerton -- Broadcasting & Cable, 5/27/2010 10:51:42 AM

Free Press Policy Director Ben Scott has exited the group to take a job in government.

Scott has been named a policy advisor for innovation at the State Department.

Free Press' policy team, which is pushing hard against the Comcast/NBCU merger and for network neutrality, will be headed by Research Director Derek Turner. "We will miss Ben’s leadership, wise counsel, and strategic brilliance -- for Free Press and the overall movement for media and technology policy in the public interest," said Free Press President Josh Silver.
