FCC officially names new inspector general

David Hunt has been named as inspector general for the Federal Communications Commission, a post he has been covering on an acting basis for a year and a half.

Hunt has been at the FCC since 1996, after working as a trial lawyer. At the FCC he has worked as an attorney for the Common Carrier Bureau and Enforcement Bureau and served as assistant inspector general since 2006 before being named acting inspector general in June 2009, according to an FCC statement.

FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski praised Hunt in a statement released Monday.

"During the time he served as Acting IG, David and his team have been instrumental in working with us to uncover millions of dollars of fraud in federally funded programs, and helping to obtain numerous indictments and criminal convictions nationwide," Genachowski said.
