Newton Minow (born 1926)
JFK made Newton N. Minow, a
Chicago lawyer, head of the FCC.
FCC stands for Federal Communications
Commission, an independent United States government agency,
established by the Communications Act of 1934 and charged with
regulating interstate and international broadcasting.
And there was going to be no more monkey business with Minow in that chair.
On May 9, 1961, Newton Minow gave his
Television and the Public Interest speech before the
National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) at their annual
convention in Washington D.C.
