Her unique combination of skill, expertise, and record of service will be a major asset for my team and the agency as a whole,” said Rosenworcel.
“It’s no secret that the FCC regularly handles some of the most complicated technical, legal, and technological challenges of our time. Priscilla brings terrific skills and experience to her role, and I have no doubt that I and the agency will benefit greatly as a result,” said Rosenworcel.
