STATEMENT OF COMMISSIONER ROBERT M. McDOWELL

ON THE ANNOUNCEMENT THAT MIGNON L. CLYBURN

WILL SERVE AS ACTING CHAIRMAN

The following statement can be attributed to Commissioner Robert M. McDowell:
“I congratulate my distinguished colleague, Mignon Clyburn, on being designated Acting Chair
of the FCC by President Obama. As her friend, I am delighted that Mignon has written a page in
American history as the first woman to serve at the helm of the Commission. While we do not
always agree on policy, I have consistently found Mignon to be thoughtful, highly perceptive,
energetic and respectful of opposing viewpoints. I have been honored to work with her over our
nearly four years of service together. She is a consummate public servant who strives to make
the American communications marketplace better for consumers. I wish her every success in her
new role.”
