WASHINGTON, D.C. - In response to the withdrawal of the nomination of Michael O'Rielly to a five-year term with the Federal Communications Commission, the following statement can be attributed to NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith:

'Mike O'Rielly has been a sterling public servant for as long as I have had the privilege of knowing him, a span of time covering my years in the Senate and throughout my time leading NAB. He is the consummate professional-smart, diligent, honest, and fair. For these and many other reasons, NAB has been proud to support his continued service at the Commission. But for these reasons also, I have every confidence that he will succeed wherever he casts his lot.'
