Art Brodsky at DC Drinking Liberally


This Thursday, December 6, DC Drinking Liberally is pleased to have as our final guest speaker of the year Art Brodsky, communications director of Public Knowledge. The event will be at the usual time and place: 6:30-9pm in the back room of Timberlake’s (1726 Connecticut Ave NW, Dupont Circle Metro). We’ll start off with happy hour from about 6:30 to 7, followed Art’s talk and Q&A from about 7 to 7:45, and then we’ll probably hang around until 9 or so.

You may have seen Art’s posts on TPMCafe or the Huffington Post on net neutrality, telecom policy, and copyright — for example, this post on Comcast and net neutrality or this post on Verizon and the FCC.

Here’s Art’s bio from the Public Knowledge site:

Art Brodsky is communications director of Public Knowledge. He is a veteran of Washington, D.C. telecommunications and Internet journalism and public relations.

Art worked for 16 years with Communications Daily, a leading trade publication. He covered Congress through the passage of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and other major pieces of legislation. He also covered telephone regulation at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and at state regulatory commissions. In addition, he has covered the online industry since before there was an Internet, coming in just after videotext died but before the World Wide Web. Art was later an editor with Congressional Quarterly, with responsibilities for the daily and Web coverage of telecom, tech and other issues. He also worked at newspapers around the country. Art’s work has appeared in publications as diverse as the Washington Post, and the World Book encyclopedia. He was a commentator on the public radio program, Marketplace, and appeared on C-SPAN.

On the PR front, Art worked as communications director for the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) and for the Washington, D.C. office of Qwest Communications International.

Art graduated from the University of Maryland in December 1973 with High Honors and a degree in government and politics. He received an MSJ degree in journalism from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University in June 1975. He and his wife, Liz, live in Olney, MD. They have two daughters.
