Senate confirms Mignon Clyburn for FCC

Commissioner a possible successor to Julius Genachowski

The Senate has confirmed Mignon Clyburn for a full, five-year term on the FCC.

Clyburn, first confirmed in 2009 to fill a partial term, said she looks “forward to working with both the House and the Senate as we share a mission to oversee communication policy that keeps the needs of American consumers paramount.” She is the daughter of Rep. James Clyburn (R-S.C.)

FCC chairman Julius Genachowski said that 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.”

She has been mentioned as a possible successor to Genachowski should he depart the FCC, as has been the case with previous chairmen as a president begins another term. Another name floated is the Democratic appointee on the commission, Jessica Rosenworcel.
