Mignon Clyburn exits.


The FCC Commissioner announced her resignation last week during what she called “my final public meeting.” She didn’t specify the departure date, but her comment implies that you will leave before the next Open Meeting on May 10. In making the announcement, Clyburn said, “I’ve done all I know to do, and it’s time for me to serve in another way.” On behalf of the industry, NAB President/CEO Gordon Smith called Clyburn “a passionate voice on behalf of consumers and a champion of diversity in the media marketplace.” Chairman Ajit Pai, a political adversary, graciously said, “I congratulate Commissioner Clyburn on her distinguished tenure at the FCC. She has been a tremendous leader and a committed public servant throughout her time here.”
