STATEMENT BY FCC COMMISSIONER MIGNON L. CLYBURN
ON DEPARTURE OF ANGELA E. GIANCARLO“I wish for my friend, Angela Giancarlo, the very best as she embarks on career opportunities
outside of the agency. Angela has been an excellent advocate for Commissioner McDowell’s
policy priorities since 2006. Commissioner McDowell is not, however, the only one who will
regret her departure. This agency is losing a legal advisor with an impressive amount of
institutional knowledge. My advisors constantly tell me how much they appreciate her
leadership, knack for quickly finding common ground, and her willingness to carefully consider
our recommendations on circulated items. I have personally benefitted from her candid and sage
advice and will always be impressed by her insight about the communications industry. While
she will be incredibly missed, I am confident Angela will bring the same intellect, common
sense, humor, and candor to her future endeavors.”
