The Wall Street Journal reports:

"President Barack Obama is expected to soon nominate a former top lobbyist for the cable and wireless industries to lead the Federal Communications Commission, two people familiar with the matter said.

Tom Wheeler, a venture capitalist and longtime industry operative, will be tapped to lead the agency that governs the nation's scarce wireless airwaves and regulates telephone networks and indecency on television. Mr. Obama is expected to make the announcement as soon as Wednesday, an industry official and a person familiar with Mr. Wheeler's situation said."
