FCC Commissioner Jonathan Adelstein has selected his staff: Lisa Zaina will become his Senior Legal Advisor and wireline competition advisor. Adelstein also appointed three interim legal advisors: Eric Einhorn for wireline competition, Barry Ohlson for spectrum and international and Sarah Whitesell for media, and Kevin Venters as Staff Assistant.

Whitesell, interim advisor for media issues, has been the associate chief of the Media Bureau and its predecessor, the Cable Services Bureau. Prior to that position, she had been legal advisor on common carrier issues for former Commissioner Gloria Tristani.
