President-elect Lee Myung-bak may seek to empower one single government body to handle broadcasting and communications affairs, which are now managed by several agencies, Lee's aides and industry sources said yesterday.

The envisioned organization, which may be called Broadcasting-Communications Commission, would deal with policy development, promotion and oversight, they said.
Lee has stressed the need to facilitate broadcasting and communications convergence, which the relevant industries regard as new growth engines."
