FCC's Kenny Leaves For PR Firm

Acting Federal Communications Commission Press Secretary Robert Kenny has left the agency to take a job with a Washington-based public relation's firm.

Kenny, whose official last day was Wednesday, will be joining Mercury Public Affairs starting next week. He will provide media relations services and primarily focus on tech, telecommunications and health care issues, Mercury Managing Director Peter Barden said.

"Some of our largest clients expressed an interest in having more Beltway media relations services," Barden said, adding that Kenny fit the bill. "Rob Kenny has tremendous experience and talent."

Kenny has been filling in since January as FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski's spokesman after the departure of Jen Howard in December. Kenny had been working as the lead spokesman for the agency's Public Safety and Homeland Security bureau.
