Howard Exiting FCC


FCC press secretary Jen Howard said she is exiting that post next month.

Howard is taking a senior communications post at the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Her last day at the commission will be Jan. 14.

"I couldn't be more grateful to chairman Genachowski for the opportunity to be a part of his team at such an exciting time," she said.

Before joining the commission, Howard was a top spokesperson for Free Press.
