NAB files ex parte on JSAs


NAB / National Association of BroadcastersHere’s an ex parte filed with the FCC from Jane Mago, NAB EVP/General Counsel Legal and Regulatory Affairs regarding a meeting on the Commission’s proposal to attribute joint sales agreements (JSAs) for the purposes of media ownership limits. The ex parte notes that JSAs are a necessary response to increased competition in the local ad market and any FCC action on the issue should not be made without a broader consideration of broadcast ownership rules. The ex parte also highlights examples of public interest benefits from joint sales arrangements, including the preservation of jobs, upgrades in facilities, and increased production of community affairs programming.
