Branscome to Replace Rosenworcel as Senior Communications Adviser to Senate Commerce


John Branscome, communications counsel for the Senate Commerce Committee, is moving up to senior communications counsel, the post formerly held by new Democratic FCC commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, a committee source confirmed.

In addition, Shawn Bone, a public policy consultant at Wiley Rein in D.C., will be joining the committee, replacing Branscome.

Branscome is a former FCC bureau chief and legal adviser, including to then commissioners Michael Copps and Kathleen Abernathy. He was also detailed from the FCC to advise Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) on communications issues.
