Julius Genachowski said Friday that he is stepping down as chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, a post he has held since 2009. During his tenure, Genachowski faced a number of important issues, including media consolidation, cable and telecom industry competition and cooperation — and, most notably, a sharp debate over broadband spectrum. Genachowski’s announcement comes just days after FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell made public his plans to leave the agency. President Obama will make appointments to fill both vacancies.
