WDNS/WKCT DOING BUSINESS AS THE DAILY NEWS BROADCASTING COMPANY COMPLETED THE FOLLOWING  OUTREACH INITIATIVES.

WDNS GENERAL MANAGER SPOKE TO WESTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY BROADCAST MANAGEMENT CLASS COVERING THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF DAY TO DAY OPERATIONS OF RADIO MANAGEMENT

 WKCT PROGRAM DIRECTOR  MENTORED FOUR  LOCAL  STUDENTS THROUGH AN INTERNSHIP PROGRAM FROM WESTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY DIRECTED AT STUDENTS PURSUING A CAREER IN BROADCASTING. THE GOAL OF THE PROGRAM IS TO RECRUIT CANDIDATES, PRIMARARILY FROM LOCAL COLLEGES, AND PREPARE THEM FOR ENTRY-LEVEL POSITIONS WITHIN THE BROADCAST INDUSTRY.

WDNS/WKCT MANAGEMENT PARTICIPATED IN TRAINING TO ENSURE EQUAL EMPLOYEMENT OPPORTUNITY AND TO PREVENT ANY DISCRIMINATION WHEN HIRING OVER THE COURSE OF THE YEAR. NO FULL TIME POSITIONS WERE FILLED FOR THE PERIOD.

WKCT PROGRAM DIRECTOR VISITED WESTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY ABOUT WORKING IN NEWS WRITING AND INTERN OPURTUNITIES AT WDNS/WKCT.

WDNS/WDNS GENERAL MANAGER AND WKCT PROGRAM DIRECTOR PARTICIPATED IN A JOB FAIR AT WESTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY.

The Commission suggested 16 Menu Options from which a broadcaster can choose to satisfy this

requirement. These 16 options are as follows:

1. Participation in at least four job fairs by station personnel who have substantial responsibility for

hiring decisions.

2. Hosting at least one job fair.

3. Co-sponsoring at least one job fair with an organization in the business and professional

community whose membership includes substantial participation of women and minorities.

4. Participation in at least four activities sponsored by community groups active in broadcast

employment issues, including conventions, career days, workshops and similar activities.

5. The establishment of an internship program designed to assist members of the community to

acquire skills needed for broadcast employment.

 

6. Participation in general (not vacancy-specific) outreach efforts by such means as job banks or

Internet programs.

7. Participation in scholarship programs directed to students who wish to pursue a broadcasting

career (simply donating money to someone else’s scholarship program is not sufficient to qualify

for a credit).

8. The establishment of training programs.

9. The establishment of mentoring programs. (Both training and mentoring programs are

intended to allow station personnel to acquire skills that could qualify them for higher level

positions. These two options would not be satisfied by ordinary training required for employees to

perform their current positions, but instead should train employees for career advancement.)

10. Participation in at least four events or programs relating to career opportunities in broadcasting

sponsored by educational institutions.

11. Sponsorship of at least two events in the community designed to inform the public as to

employment opportunities in broadcasting.

12. Listing each upper-level opening in a job bank or newsletter of a media trade group with a

broad-based membership, including participation of women and minorities.

13. Providing assistance to outside non-profit entities in the maintenance of web sites that provide

counseling on the process of searching for broadcast employment and/or other career

development assistance pertinent to broadcasting.

14. Providing training to management level personnel as to methods of ensuring equal

employment opportunity and preventing discrimination.

15. Providing training to personnel of outside recruitment organizations that would enable them

to better refer job candidates for broadcast positions.

16. Participation in activities other than the fifteen listed options that the licensee has designed to

further the goal of disseminating information about employment opportunities in broadcasting to

job candidates who might otherwise be unaware of such opportunities.
