I am FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn. Ask Me Anything!
I am Mignon Clyburn, Commissioner and former Acting Chairwoman of the Federal Communications Commission.
Before moving to Washington, I served 11 years on the Public Service Commission representing the great state of South Carolina. What excites me the most about this position, is the ability to work every day on issues that affect all Americans: from expanding access to broadband, to ensuring reliable telephone and television service. And speaking of tv, I am a huge fan of vintage shows, love to add pecans to my morning yogurt, and if I could get away with it on a regular basis, would consume large scoops of Butterfinger ice cream every night. While I am a bit partial to the colors purple and blue, I remain loyal to Garnet and Black, aka The University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks!)
I’m Ready for Reddit, so ask me anything!
