FCC’s Riley Hollingsworth to Retire

2007-10-24Riley Hollingsworth, Special Counsel in the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau, announced his retirement this week, effective Friday, January 3, 2008.  While his successor has not been named, Hollingsworth was quick to point out that the FCC’s Amateur Radio enforcement program will continue.

Hollingsworth told the ARRL: “After about a year of thinking about the ‘if not now, when?’ question, I decided to retire January 3.  I love working for the FCC and I’ve always had great jobs, but this one involving the Amateur Radio Service has been the most fun and I have enjoyed every day of it.”
