To commemorate the 40th anniversary of his service as Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission and the 30th anniversary of launching of the FCC Advisory Committee on Advanced Television Service, the Honorable Richard E. Wiley was honored by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA®) in October. Known as “Chairman for Life” the “Sixth Commissioner,” and of course the “Father of HDTV,” Wiley was feted by CTA President & CEO Gary Shapiro and others. In addition to a stunning CTA crystal trophy, Wiley was presented a congratulatory letter signed by all 11 living FCC Chairmen since 1977, saluting his “leadership and vision” and applauding his key role “that ushered in the era of HDTV and digital broadcasting.”
