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, 2017 to and including January 31, 2018 (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.

KLKN-TV has been involved in helping members of the community achieve their educational goals.  The station 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 five internships at KLKN-TV.

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, 2016 to January 31, 2017 Annual EEO Public File Report was distributed to the station managers during the February 14, 2017 manager’s meeting and was discussed by the Business Manager, Randy Ksionzek.

KLKN-TV was selected for an FCC EEO audit, during the March 1, 2017 manager’s meeting Business Manager, Randy Ksionzek discussed the requested information and support needed along with the report deadline.

On December 19, 2017 a discussion was had with all KLKN-TV department managers regarding the contents of an EEO memo, dated December 15, 2017 from Wiley Rein LLP, regarding the “FCC Activity Enforcing Broadcast EEO Rules”. 

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.
