Upsample them all to 24 or 32-bit 48kHz* WAV at or before import. This will gain no 'new' quality but will enable more manipulation/plugins etc without losing anything further. You then have the highest quality master you can achieve, which you can downsample afterwards to whatever broadcast structure you need. *or 44.1 if you don't need video sync.
