Clyburn being sworn in for second FCC term

CHARLESTON (AP) — Charleston native Mignon Clyburn is being sworn in for her second term as a member of the Federal Communications Commission.


Clyburn is being sworn in on Saturday in a ceremony at Charleston City Hall.


Clyburn is the daughter of South Carolina 6th District U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn. She was confirmed for another four-year term by the Senate on Jan. 1 after she was re-nominated by President Barack Obama.


She said she’s looking forward to continuing her work with the commission to improve the nation’s communication policies.
