Last week we joined the speculation over how Obama's victory will influence media regulation, offering one name as possible FCC chair. Now Business Week weighs in on some of the other candidates.

Henry Rivera, partner at Washington law firm Wiley Rein (left), is heading up the search and, according to the magazine, "the Obama team is considering appointing the first African American woman to the post."

The candidates listed as being under consideration include Julia Johnson, Mignon Clyburn, Blair Levin, Scott Blake Harris, Don Gips, Larry Strickling, and our favorite, Julius Genachowski.
