The White House has nominated Jessica Rosenworcel to lead the Federal Communications Commission and Gigi Sohn as a commissioner on the five-member body, filling two vacancies that have existed for months.

Ms. Rosenworcel has been serving as the acting chief of the F.C.C. during the Biden administration. A Democrat, she began serving as a commissioner in 2012 after working as an FCC and Senate staffer. She returned to the commission again in 2017 after her previous term lapsed.

Ms. Sohn served as counselor to former FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler and led Public Knowledge, a public interest group advocating for stronger antitrust enforcement.
