Sources: FCC snags ex-Boucher aide

Amy Levine, who served as a telecom aide to former Rep. Rick Boucher (D-Va.), is taking a job with Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Julius Genachowski, according to industry sources. 

She is slated to work on spectrum policy as the commission makes a major push to free up more of the airwaves for mobile broadband, they said. 

Boucher, who was chairman of the House Communications subcommittee before losing reelection last year, had drafted a bill to give the FCC authority to move forward on incentive spectrum auctions, an agency priority this year.

The FCC would not confirm Tuesday.
