Genachowski staying put, aide says

An aide to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski has debunked the notion his boss is splitting the agency to take a cabinet post in the Obama Administration.

Word earlier this week was that Genachowski was in the running to take over as commerce secretary when Gary Locke left that post to become ambassador to China.
