Mignon Clyburn begins second term on FCC

February 15, 2013 

Mignon L. Clyburn will be sworn in for her second term as a member of the Federal Communications Commission today at Charleston City Hall.

Charleston native Clyburn, the daughter of Emily Clyburn and U.S. Rep. James E. Clyburn, D-Columbia, was confirmed by the U.S. Senate, following her re-nomination by President Barack Obama, for a second, final term on the commission to conclude in June 2017.

“I thank President Obama and the members of the United States Senate for their confidence in me, and I look forward to working with my FCC colleagues to further improve and smartly tailor our nation’s communications policies,” Clyburn said in a statement.
