KLKN-TV EEO Annual 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, 2016 to and including January 31, 2017 (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.

Appendix 3:  Outreach Initiatives

1.   Internship Program:                                                                                                             

KLKN has been involved in helping members of the community achieve their educational goals.  KLKN recruits students interested in the broadcast industry by widely advertising our internship programs at career fairs and by educating managers to mention this opportunity when speaking with members of the community.  Letters of Agreement are filled out by the prospective intern and signed off on by a professor of the university and an evaluation is performed at the end of the intern's term.  During this period, we have had a total of seven internships at KLKN. 

A.  University of Nebraska - Lincoln student – News:  Photography, writing, editing, live skills, and                                         reporting.  Twelve weeks beginning January 2016.

B.  University of Nebraska - Lincoln student – Weather:  Weather forecasting and on-air skills                            Twelve weeks beginning January 2016.

C.  University of Nebraska - Lincoln student – News:  Photography, writing, editing, live skills, and                                            reporting.  Twelve weeks beginning January 2016.  (We hired this student for part time temporary summer hours at the end of her internship, then she returned to Fall classes).

D.  University of Nebraska - Lincoln student – News:  Photography, writing, editing, live skills, and reporting.  Twelve weeks beginning May 2016.

E.   University of Nebraska - Lincoln student – News:  Photography, writing, editing, live skills, and                                            reporting.  Twelve weeks beginning May 2016.

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. On August 9, 2016 a discussion with the Business Manager, President/COO, General Manager and KLKN-TV department managers regarding the contents of an EEO memo with an important reminder of the “failure to recruit for job openings by disseminating information about those job openings through diverse sources will likely result in a substantial fine”. 

The February 1, 2016 to January 31, 2017 Annual EEO Public File Report was distributed to the station managers during the January 19, 2016 manager’s meeting and was discussed by the Business Manager, Randy Ksionzek.

Randy Ksionzek, Business Manager, attended an EEO Management Workshop sponsored by Cline Williams Wright Johnson & Oldfather Attorneys at Law on September 20, 2016. This seminar focused on ensuring broad outreach for hiring, implementing changes to the FLSA’s White-Collar exemptions, equal employment opportunity and preventing discrimination. 

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.

4.  Job Bank & Internet Program Participation:

KLKN participates in job banks and internet programs with many organizations, as outlined above in italics, including the Nebraska Broadcasters Assoc., Advertising Federation of Lincoln, TVJobs.com, etc.  These organizations have programs designed for outreach generally, and are not primarily directed to providing notification of specific job vacancies.  (See italicized recruitment sources on above list.)

5.  Scholarship Program:

KLKN-TV, in conjunction with the Nebraska Broadcasters Association, actively participated in the 2016 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 Northeast Community College and University of Nebraska - Lincoln.  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.

6.   Participation in Career Fairs:

KLKN-TV co-sponsored a job fair with the Lincoln Area Broadcasters group on August 16, 2016 at the Embassy Suites – Lincoln.  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 5 people attended the job fair but did not complete the information sheet. KLKN-TV was involved in a meaningful role by providing the Business Manager assistant to maintain the registration table and greet attendees.  A follow-up meeting was held to discuss the positives of the job fair and where improvements can be made.  Minutes of the meeting are kept in the Business Office’s EEO file.  A broadly rotated promotional spot for the job fair ran on KLKN-TV, its website and was also widely promoted by other members of the Lincoln Area Broadcasters group.  This group included the two major radio groups and three television stations in the Lincoln market.  The KLKN-TV booth at the job fair was manned at all times by two managers with decision making power for the station (Business Manager, News Director, Operations Manager, and Sales Manager).

University of Nebraska College of Journalism & Mass Communications – Lincoln “Springboard your Career Fair” – March 4, 2016.  Jeff Swanson (Director of Broadcast Operations) participated.  This job fair event involved meeting with students one on one to provide advice on resume building, school curriculum and other ideas to become more attractive to prospective employers.  Received numerous resumes, watched demo reels and observed each student’s strengths and weaknesses. He discussed the many possibilities available in the broadcasting industry.

7. Disseminating Information as to Employment Opportunities in Broadcasting:

KLKN created a television spot which airs approximately every day on different day parts.  The spot: 1) asks organizations that distribute information about employment opportunities to contact KLKN to get on our mailing list (all contact information including address, phone and email are provided) and 2) informs job seekers to check KLKN’s website for postings of current openings.  The spot confirms KLKN is an Equal Opportunity Employer. 

8. Participate in event or program related to career opportunities in broadcasting by educational institutions:
