Mr. Morisy-
We are processing the above captioned FOIA request which seeks documents relating to an investigation of Station WYGG, Asbury Park, NJ. We are checking with other components of the agency, including field offices to locate responsive records. If you have additional information regarding who conducted the investigation in question, when it occurred, or the outcome of the investigation, please let us know. This will ultimately reduce the cost of providing the records requested.

We are in the process of locating the documents responsive to your request. As required, we endeavor to respond to FOIA requests within 20 working days. However, where a request involves either a large number of documents or requires coordination with other components of the agency, we occasionally require the 10 working day extension provided for in 5 U.S.C. 552(a)(6)(b)(I). Because your request requires consultation with other components of the Commission, we are extending the deadline for our response by 10 working days, i.e., to March 20, 2015. Id.
