At the Nov. 30 Seattle FCC Media Ownership hearing, event co-chairs Frank Blethen (publisher, The Seattle Times) and Sharon Maeda (Spectra Communications/Reclaim the Media) first introduced Congressman Jay Inslee; his comments were followed by remarks from the two FCC Commissioners in attendance, Michael Copps and Jonathan Adelstein.

Public testimony began with a group of invited speakers:

Jean Godden, Seattle City Council

Diane Lachel, Tacoma Click!
John Sandifer, Seattle AFTRA
