FCC commissioner Mignon Clyburn has named Dave Grimaldi as her new chief of staff and media legal advisor.

Grimaldi had been senior counsel to house Majority Whip James E. Clyburn (Mignon's father), specializing in telecom and technology, among other things.

Grimaldi is also former legislative counsel to Rep. Ed Towns (D-NY).

Angela Kronenberg, Clyburn's legal advisor for wireline issues, had been serving as acting chief of staff since July, when Clyburn's chief of staff, Rick Kaplan, was named chief counsel and senior legal advisor to FCC chairman Julius Genachowski.

Kronenberg remains wireline legal advisor.
