FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski has gone the somewhat nontraditional route in naming the new deputy chief of the consumer and governmental affairs bureau.

It is Yul Kwon, a name familiar for more than his degree in Symbolic Systems from Stanford and a law degree from Yale, where he served on the editorial board of the Yale Law Journal.

Kwon's resume includes stints at Google and McKinsey & Co., as well as a special correspondent on CNN and for the Discovery Channel. That came after Kwon won CBS reality show, Survivor, the first Asian-American to do so the FCC points out.
