Mignon Clyburn Stepping Down as FCC Commissioner


Washington, DC – The following statement may be attributed to Claude Aiken, President and CEO of the Wireless Internet Service Providers Association ( 

Today, Commissioner Mignon Clyburn announced her plans to step down from the Federal Communications Commission after eight years on the job. Commissioner Clyburn has been a tireless advocate for all consumers, especially the voiceless. She has made immeasurable contributions to the issues of affordable broadband, a diverse media landscape, and a robustly competitive communications marketplace. She was accessible, well-informed, and a good listener. During my time at the FCC, Commissioner Clyburn was an amazing boss, and remains a dear friend. WISPA wishes her all the best in her new endeavors beyond the FCC: she will be sorely missed.
