Nightly Business Report, acquired last year by businessman Mykalai Kontilai, has hired a lobbyist. Alan Rubin of Buchanan, Ingersoll & Rooney has registered with Congress to advocate for a Department of Defense education intitative. Kontilai told Current last year that the project entails supplying members of the military with financial educational information. Kontilai’s acquisition of the show in 2010 was big news in the pubcasting system, as reported by both Current and, subsequently, the New York Times.
