Appendix 3 to Annual EEO Public File Report

Covering the Period from October 1, 2015 through September 30, 2016

Station(s) Comprising the Station Employment Unit: KSNF

Section 3:  Supplemental (Non-Vacancy Specific) Recruitment Activities Undertaken by KSNF

 

Recruitment Initiative

Description

1

The establishment of an internship program designed to assist members of the community to acquire skills needed for broadcast employment.

This ongoing semester internship program has been in place at the station for seven years.  The station welcomes students from area universities and colleges who are motivated and excited about expanding their knowledge and hands-on experience in a vibrant broadcasting environment.  Students must be enrolled in a program related to the broadcasting industry, and their internship must be endorsed, supported and consistently monitored by the sponsoring university.  Students are rewarded with course credit upon completion of the semester-long program. Internship periods include Fall, Spring and Summer.  This reporting period we had three interns all during the summer semester; Auburn University-1, Mid-America Nazarene University-1 and Missouri Southern State University-1.

2

Participation in job fairs by station personnel who have responsibility for hiring decisions.

On November 4th, 2015 the station participated in a Career Fair sponsored by McDonald County High School.  The Career Fair gave high school students the opportunity to explore career options available to them. Representing the station Was Robin Psajdl, KSNF Sales.

On April 6th, 2016 we attended the Spring Career Fair 2016 at Missouri Southern State University.  The event was attended by Francesca Moore, Promotions Manager and News and Weather Anchors from both stations.

3

Participation in general (not vacancy-specific) outreach efforts

The station sponsors a high school job shadowing program developed in conjunction with area high schools that allow students to job shadow news and production people.  This gives them the opportunity to evaluate the profession and decide whether this is a career path they would like to follow.  We had ten students job shadow.
