>WASHINGTON -- In response to the release of an order by the FCC regarding the attribution of joint sales agreements (JSAs) for the purposes of media ownership, the following statement can be attributed to NAB Senior Vice President of Communications Ann Marie Cumming:
"NAB is currently reviewing the order with particular focus on details surrounding the waiver process. With the FCC now seeking to undo JSAs which it had previously approved, we believe there should be ample opportunities for broadcasters to pursue waivers that preserve the public services these station partnerships have made possible in local communities across the country."
