FCC’s Clyburn nominated for second term

President Obama on Wednesday nominated Mignon Clyburn as a Democratic member of the Federal Communications Commission.

Clyburn was first appointed to the five-member board in July 2009 and has consistently sided with decisions by Chairman Julius Genachowski.

Clyburn, the daughter of House Assistant Minority Leader James Clyburn (D-S.C.), came to the FCC after a long history on the public utilities board of South Carolina.
