Charlyn Stanberry has been hired on to join the lobbying team at the National Association of Broadcasters.
She will be vice president of government relations and report to Shawn Donilon, executive vice president of government relations.
Stanberry is former chief of staff for Rep. Yvette Clarke, a Democratic congresswoman from New York, for whom she also worked as legislative director and counsel.
Past roles also include VP of external affairs for Net Communications; counsel for the Multicultural Media, Telecom and Internet Council; and professional staff member for the Congressional Black Caucus. She was a regional voter protection director in Florida for the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2016.
She also is an adjunct professor at the University of the District of Columbia where she teaches Foundation Civics and Ethics & Values.
In the announcement, NAB President/CEO Gordon Smith said Stanberry “has excelled on Capitol Hill, in the private sector and in the legal community, and commands expert knowledge of the legislative process.”
Last week, NAB announced that Smith plans to retire from the association at the end of this year, to be succeeded by Curtis LeGeyt, a veteran of that same lobbying department.
