Sun, Grace Join FCC's Communications Team

The Federal Communications Commission announced Thursday that it has added two new staffers to its communications team: Tammy Sun and Neil Grace. Sun, founder and CEO of Let it Shine, Inc., a New York-based public relations firm, will serve as communications director for the agency, while Grace, who represents technology and telecom clients (including Microsoft and Qualcomm) for Burson Martsteller, will serve as press secretary to Chairman Julius Genachowski.

Sun's previous positions include deputy communications director for the William J. Clinton Foundation, press secretary for the Democratic Leadership Council and spokesman for Sen. Joe Lieberman's 2006 re-election campaign, according to the agency's announcement. Grace, a graduate of Georgetown University, joined Burson-Marsteller in 2004 after beginning his career in public relations at the National Restaurant Association in 2002.

Sun will replace David Fiske, who will shift from director to deputy director of the Office of Media Relations. Grace will replace Jen Howard, who left the FCC in January to become spokesman for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Genachowski's interim press secretary, Rob Kenny, left the agency last week to join Mercury Public Affairs.

Sun begins at the FCC on April 29, while Grace starts on May 2.
