Change in Leadership at FCC

Posted on June 5th, 2013 by

With the departure of Former Chairman Genachowski, and the wait for Senate approval of Chairman nominee Tom Wheeler, Commissioner Mignon Clyburn is now Acting FCC Chairwoman until such time as Wheeler is confirmed and sworn
in. The timeline for Wheeler’s approval is uncertain. He has largely been hailed as wellqualified, which bodes well for his Senate approval. Clyburn is the first female to be chairperson of the FCC. She has only two sitting commissioners at this time, Commissioners Pai and Rosenworcel.
