Wireless carriers can help broadcasters grow their business, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski told a TV conference on Wednesday in urging the industries to cooperate more closely on content distribution and their upcoming incentive spectrum auction. "Mobile is an exciting, new platform for exactly what broadcasters do, which is produce great national and local content," Genachowski said. He noted that stations had initially fought cable companies who turned into a "boon" for the industry. "Given the new economic models, the same thing could happen to mobile," he said.
