In an effort to comply with the FCC requirement that radio stations widely disseminate information about job openings and engage in activities that inform citizens of broadcasting jobs and the skills it takes to hold these jobs, we do the following:


-Broadcast live at two County Fairs where we have extensive contact with the public and talk about job opportunities when we have openings and, more often, when members of the public seek us out to learn about broadcasting.  This also provides the public with the opportunity to observe some of the skills necessary to be in the broadcasting industry.

- When requested our staff speaks to various civic, religious and school groups about broadcasting opportunities.

    - GM/owner participated in Career Day at the Middle School

    - GM and Sales Manager participated in Career Fair

    - Program Director participated in career days at elementary and high school level

- Job shadow and career day activities bring students into our station; we have local elementary through high school students in our station as well as interns from the Ohio School of Broadcasting

- Colorado Ag Days – extensive contact with many people from our community who often express an interest in broadcasting jobs, especially as it related to agriculture.

- Colorado Farm Show – we continually are looking for people who can contribute to our coverage of agriculture.  This particular event reaches the entire state of Colorado, especially the western edge of our listening area.  We actively recruit those who might contribute a different set of ideas or come from a different background for our agriculture programming.

-Northeast Colorado Broadcasting has established a program for high school and junior college students who are interested in a career in broadcasting.  These students are often hired as part time employees, while others participate for school credit.

- All employees are encouraged to participate in training that will enhance their individual skills. The sales staff frequently receives training from an outside source; the news, sports and farm staff have opportunities to attend conferences and webinars and all have have access to relevant magazines and professional associations to enhance their skills. Further, each staff member is cross-trained within the organization which gives them additional marketable skills.

- These programs also includes training on equal employment opportunity issues.

- Partner with the local workforce center and other local organizations in job fairs and job awareness activities.

    -Participated in Job Fair, April 30, 2015, Fort Morgan, Colorado, attended by Sales Manager

-We utilize the local employment service to help advertise job openings; participate in the local organization that is dedicated to bridging the gap between the Hispanic and White populations; use one of the best tools a small town and small station has – word of mouth – to reach potential job candidates; and participate in a variety of community events that reach different segments of the community, i.e., festivals, religious fund raisers, awards banquets, etc. that keep us visible. Because we generally have very few vacancies and live in an area with a comparatively low number of unemployed persons, continued visibility is key to reaching our community.

- We use Facebook, Twitter and all social media that we use to disseminate job openings.  As our social media friends “like” and disseminate the job opening on their social media feeds our reach is extended into populations that we may not have direct access to.
