The game of musical chairs at the Federal Communications Commission continued yesterday as FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn announced Dave Grimaldi would be taking over as her chief of staff and media legal adviser.

Before being named to Clyburn’s staff, Grimaldi was chief counsel for her father, House Majority Whip James E. Clyburn (D-SC). Previously, Grimaldi worked as legal counsel for New York representative Ed Towns and with The Raben Group, a public policy law and lobbying firm.

“Our entire office welcomes Dave,” Clyburn said. ” We look forward to the diverse experience, commitment, creativity, and leadership he will bring to our team.”

Grimaldi succeeds Angela Kronenberg, who was named acting chief of staff in July, taking over for Rick Kaplan who was shifted to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski’s office as his chief counsel and legal adviser. Kronenberg was previously Clyburn’s wireline legal adviser on media and consumer issues, and she will remain in that position once Grimaldi takes over.
