C-SPAN's The Communicators features LightSquared debate

from NSPS

C-SPAN's The Communicators has focused on LightSquared, with interviews with Rep. Paul Broun, R-Ga., of the House Science, Space and Technology Subcommittee; Jim Kirkland, founding member of the Coalition to Save our GPS; and Fred Schulte, senior reporter of iWatch News. A video clip of the show is available on C-SPAN's website here.

On The Communicators, this was the second part of a look at LightSquared, a company building a national wireless broadband network. Rep. Broun and Kirkland are critical of LightSquared's goals and business practices. Also joining the discussion was Fred Schulte, senior reporter for iwatch news, who has followed the LightSquared story and reported on email exchanges between the White House and company officials.

In Part 1 of this series, LightSquared's CEO, Sanjiv Ahuja, was on the program defending his business and his network, which might interfere with GPS global positioning equipment, including some used by the military.

The Communicators airs Saturday at 6:30 p.m. ET on C-SPAN and Monday at 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. ET on C-SPAN2. more
