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, 2008 to and including January 31, 2009 (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.  Pleas 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.

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:

A.  Concordia University student - News:  Producing, writing, editing and reporting.  Eight weeks beginning May 2008.

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.

      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 to all individuals without regard to their race, color, religion, age, national origin, or sex in 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. 

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, Chicano Awareness Center, Clyde Malone Community Center, El Centro de las Americas, Indian Center Workforce in Action, Mexican American Commission, NAACP, NAF Multicultural Human Development Corporation, National Council of Negro Women, Native American Public Telecommunications, Nebraska Commission on Indian Affairs, Nebraska Equal Opportunity Commission, Nebraska Indian Community College, the Urban League of Nebraska and the following organizations/departments at the University of Nebraska: African American Organization, African Student Assn., Afrikan People's Union, American Multicultural Students, Asian American Cultural Society, Asian Student Alliance, Department of Black Studies, International Student Organization, Intertribal Student Council, Latino American Students Assn., Mexican-American Student Assn., UNITE,  Women's Resource Center. 

4.   Job Fair:

  

      KLKN-TV co-sponsored a job fair with the Lincoln Area Broadcasters group August 7, 2008 at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Lincoln, Nebraska. The job fair was attended by 36 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 2 television stations in the Lincoln market. Also participating with this Job Fair this year was a radio group from Nebraska City.  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, Local Sales Manager, News Director, Operations Manager, and Promotions Manager).

  

  

5.   Scholarship Program:

  

KLKN-TV, in conjunction with the Nebraska Broadcasters Association, actively participated in the 2008 Nebraska Broadcasters Association Foundation Student Scholarship Program. Twelve applicants applied for this scholarship under this program and two $1,600 scholarships were awarded. The winners were from Wayne State College and the University of Nebraska - Omaha. KLKN-TV provided $300 for the scholarship pool, ran a broadly rotated promotional spot for the program, and judged/ranked each one of the twelve applicants application forms based upon a criteria of GPA, essay, experience in the field, honors and awards, and post high school extra curricular activities.
