iHeartMedia, Inc. announced that telecommunications policy expert Sara Morris has joined its Washington, D.C.-based Government Affairs team as Senior Director, Government Affairs reporting to Jessica Marventano, Senior Vice President of Government Affairs. Morris will also work alongside Dan Dukes, who was recently promoted to Senior Director, Government Affairs for iHeartMedia, Inc.
Morris has nearly three decades of experience in telecommunications-related policy and legislative processes on a bipartisan and bicameral basis. Morris joins iHeartMedia from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), where she served as Director of its Legislative Affairs division, representing the FCC before Republican and Democratic offices and committees in both the Senate and House of Representatives.
Prior to the FCC, Morris served as Deputy Director and Telecommunications Policy Analyst in the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Office of Congressional Affairs; as a Government Affairs policy analyst at Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker LLP; and oversaw the administrative support operations for the House Energy and Commerce’s Subcommittee on Telecommunications and Finance under then-Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA).
“Sara has been at the intersection of telecom policy and its politics for many years and is a seasoned hand and resource for many. Her expertise, deep knowledge of the telecom field and ability to bridge the differences across the aisle make her a unique and welcome addition to our team,” said Marventano.
