FCC’s Clyburn Names New Chief of Staff

WASHINGTON -- Chanelle Hardy has been named chief of staff and media legal adviser to Federal Communications Commission member Mignon Clyburn, effective May 1.

Hardy had been senior vice president for policy at the National Urban League and director of its Washington bureau. Her resume also includes a stint as staff attorney at the Federal Trade Commission and as chief of staff to former Rep. Arthur Davis (D-Ala.).

Hardy succeeds Adonis Hoffman, whose exit from the FCC at the beginning of this month to launch a global think tank was first reported by Multichannel News.

"Chanelle Hardy is a deeply committed public servant, who brings significant experience in policy analysis, advocacy, strategic partnerships and media analytics to my office," Clyburn said. "She has been recognized for her strategic vision and effective coalition-building over the years, and has worked effectively with organizations from every sector of society on important economic and social policy issues.”
