FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn Gets Second Term
Senate approves renomination
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Senate has approved the reappointment of Mignon Clyburn to the Federal Communications Commission. She was first appointed to the commission in 2009 for a term than ran through last June. She is one of three Democrats among the five commissioners. Clyburn was previously a representative on the Public Service Commission of South Carolina after working as a newspaper publisher and general manager for 14 years.

 FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski commented on Clyburn’s reappointment:

“I am so pleased that the Senate has approved Commissioner Clyburn's renomination to the FCC. Commissioner Clyburn is an excellent and dedicated public servant and has been a strong advocate in seeking to extend the benefits of broadband to all Americans. I look forward to continuing to work closely with Commissioner Clyburn and congratulate her on her new term.”
