FCC Welcomes New Commissioners

Originally posted August 3, 2009

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski issued a statement on Aug. 3, welcoming Mignon Clyburn to the FCC. “Mignon is a dedicated public servant with years of state-level and private-sector experience and it’s an honor to serve alongside such a talented colleague,” he wrote.

Clyburn is the first African-American woman to hold the position of FCC Commissioner. Her nomination to the FCC was confirmed by the Senate on July 24, along with Meredith Attwell Baker’s.

Baker was sworn in on July 31, and Genachowski welcomed her in a statement as well: “I am delighted to welcome Meredith Attwell Baker to the Federal Communications Commission. Meredith’s broad and deep experience will be a tremendous benefit to the FCC and it’s an honor to serve with such an extraordinarily talented colleague. At this critical moment in history, I look forward to collaborating with my fellow Commissioners on ways that the agency can improve the lives of all Americans through communications.”
