Channel 8 KLKN-TV Annual EEO Report 2014-2015

Annual EEO Public File Report

                  The purpose of this EEO Public File Report (“Report”) is to comply with Section 73.2080(c)(6) of the FCC's 2002 EEO Rule.  This Report has been prepared on behalf of the Station's Employment Unit that is comprised of television station KLKN-TV, Lincoln, NE and is required to be placed in the public inspection file of this station, and posted on its web site.

      The information contained in this Report covers the time period beginning February 1, 2014 to and including January 31, 2015 (the “Applicable Period”).

      The FCC's 2002 EEO Rule requires that this Report contain the following information:

1.   A list of all full-time vacancies filled by the Station Employment Unit during the Applicable Period;

2.   For each such vacancy, the recruitment resource(s) utilized to fill the vacancy (including, if applicable, organizations entitled to notification pursuant to Section 73.2080(c)(1)(ii) of the new EEO Rule, which should be separately identified), identified by name, address, contact person and telephone number;

3.   The recruitment source that referred the hiree for each full-time vacancy during the Applicable Period;

4.   Data reflecting the total number of persons interviewed for full-time vacancies during the Applicable Period and the total number of interviewees referred by each recruitment source utilized in connection with such vacancies: and

5.   A list and brief description of the initiatives undertaken pursuant to Section 73.2080(c)(2) of the FCC rules.

      Appendices 1, 2 and 3 which follow have been designed, in the aggregate, to provide the required information.  Please note that the numbers listed in Appendix 2 under the column entitled “Full-time Positions for Which This Source Was Utilized” refer to the number of the full-time job positions listed on Appendix 1.

      For purposes of this Report, a vacancy was deemed “filled” not when the offer was extended but when the hiree accepted the job offer. A person was deemed “interviewed” whether he or she was interviewed in person, over the telephone or by e-mail.

      Section 3:  Supplemental (Non-Vacancy Specific) Recruitment Activities Undertaken by KLKN-TV.

1.   Internship Program:                                                                                                             

      KLKN-TV has always been involved in helping members of the community achieve their educational goals.  The station has provided an internship program for which interns have been able to obtain practical job experience with a television station.  During this period we have provided the following internships:

2.   EEO Training:

      Equal Employment Opportunity meetings are held on a continual basis as needed for current education to department heads as to their role and responsibilities in the EEO process. We ensure that all department heads are fully educated on their reporting documentation responsibility. We educate department heads as to anti-discrimination rules and ensure that all departments are hiring in a non-discriminatory fashion. The February 1, 2013 to January 31, 2014 Annual EEO Public File Report was distributed to the station managers during the January 21, 2014 manager's meeting and was discussed by the Business Manager, Steve Anderson.

       Steve Anderson, Business Manager, attended an Employment Law Forum sponsored by Cline Williams Wright Johnson & Oldfather Attorneys at Law on September 24, 2014. This seminar focused on employment-related issues from legal, accounting, and risk management standpoints. 

      Each employee of the station has been provided, as part of the employee handbook, the Equal Employment Opportunity Program of KLKN-TV. This Program outlines the continuing policy of KLKN-TV to provide equal opportunity and the prohibition of discrimination for all individuals without regard to their race, color, religion, creed, gender, pregnancy or related medical conditions, age, national origin or ancestry, physical or mental disability, genetic information, or other consideration protected by federal, state or local laws. This policy is for all personnel actions including recruitment, evaluation, selection, promotion, compensation, training and termination. The elements of this Program include responsibility for implementation, policy dissemination, recruitment, training, and promotion.

      The employee breakroom bulletin board includes a poster from the Nebraska Equal Opportunity Commission concerning “Discrimination in Employment, Housing, and Public Accommodations” that outlines rights and responsibilities under the law.

3.   Listing of Each Upper-Level Category Opening with Organizations Targeting Women and Minorities:

      KLKN-TV has listed each upper-level category opening with organizations that target women and minorities: African Multicultural Community Center, Asian Community & Cultural Center, Clyde Malone Community Center, El Centro de las Americas, Indian Center Inc. Workforce Investment Act Program, Latino American Commission, Latino Center of the Midlands, NAACP, NAF Multicultural Human Development Corporation, National Council of Negro Women, Native American Public Telecommunications, Nebraska Commission on Indian Affairs, Nebraska Indian Community College, Urban League Family Resource Center, and the following organizations/departments at the University of Nebraska: Afghan Student Association, African American Organization, African Student Association, Afrikan People's Union, American Multicultural Students, Asian Student Association, Asian World Alliance, Black Graduate Student Association, Chinese Students/Scholars Association, Department of Black Studies, Friends of Japan, Indian Student Association, International Student Fellowship Club, Inter-Tribal Exchange, Intertribal Student Council, Iranian Student Association, Korean Student Association, Latin American Students Association, Latino Men of Impact, Mexican-American Student Association, Multicultural Business Student Association, National Council of Negro Women, Nepalese Student Association, Pan-African Student Association, Saudi Student Club, Vietnamese Student Association, and the Women's Resource Center. 

4.   Scholarship Program:

KLKN-TV, in conjunction with the Nebraska Broadcasters Association, actively participated in the 2014 Nebraska Broadcasters Association Foundation Student Scholarship Program. Applicants applied for scholarships under this program and two $1,500 scholarships were awarded. The winners were from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln and University of Nebraska – Omaha.  KLKN-TV provided $300 for the scholarship pool and ran a broadly rotated promotional spot for the program.  The award application forms requested information such as GPA, an essay, experience in the field, honors and awards, and post high school extra-curricular activities.

5.   Job Fair:

      KLKN-TV co-sponsored a job fair with the Lincoln Area Broadcasters group August 13, 2014 at the Cornhusker Hotel in Lincoln, Nebraska. The job fair was attended by 30 interested individuals that registered with a Lincoln Broadcasters Job Fair information sheet and/or resume. It is estimated another 10-15 people attended the job fair but did not complete the information sheet. KLKN-TV was involved in a meaningful role with the hosting of the job fair throughout the preparatory process/meetings for the job fair and ending with a follow-up meeting to discuss the positives of the job fair and where improvements can be made. Steve Anderson, Business Manager, was the Chairman of the committee that organized the job fair. Minutes of these meetings are kept in the business office's EEO file. A broadly rotated promotional spot for the job fair ran on KLKN-TV and was also widely promoted by other members of the Lincoln Area Broadcasters group. This group included the 2 major radio groups and 3 television stations in the Lincoln market.  The KLKN-TV booth at the job fair was manned at all times by 2 managers with decision making power for the station (Business Manager, News Director, Operations Manager, and Sales Manager).
