TV’er to join infopike panel

The Clinton administration will probably add a second broadcast industry executive to a task force on how best to build the information superhighway, an administration staffer said Sunday.

Michelle Farquhar, an official with the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, told a group of broadcasters attending the opening of the Assn. of Independent Television Stations confab here that it is “very likely” commerce secretary Ron Brown will add another broadcast industry exec to the panel.

Broadcasters have expressed anger at what they perceive as repeated sleights from the Clinton administration on whether TV stations will be players in the infopike debate. They were especially critical that Vice President Al Gore did not acknowledge broadcasters during a speech at the recent Superhighway Summit in Los Angeles.
