*WTVG did not engage in full recruitment for these positions; the recruitment sources listed in Section V were not notified.

 

 

  1. VI.             LONG-TERM RECRUITMENT MEASURES

 

The FCC's EEO Rules require broadcasters to undertake additional outreach measures to all qualified job candidates within a two year period, large market employment units with more than ten-full time employees need to complete four long term recruitment initiatives.  These measures include job fairs, internship programs, and other community events designed to inform the public as to employment opportunities in broadcasting. All are designed to encourage outreach to persons who may not be aware of the opportunities available in broadcasting or have not yet acquired the experience to compete for current vacancies. 

 

WTVG-TV 13ABC has engaged in the following long-term outreach initiatives during the period of June 1, 2011 – May 31, 2012.

 

(1)     Internship Program:  WTVG-TV continues to offer unpaid internships to college and university students.  An internship generally lasts 10-12 weeks, with each student working about 20 hours per week in exchange for college credit.  The student is given the opportunity to work with reporters, producers, photographers, sales personnel, production staff, and creative services.  Students are allowed to experience assignments in each of these departments directly relating to their education and career choice. 

During the period of this report, June 1, 2011 – May 31, 2012, WTVG has offered and accepted internships to eight (8) students.

Student                          Bowling Green State University     Summer 2012                      News Dept

(2)     Student Mentorship Program:  WTVG is committed to the youth of our community.  Each year students from various high schools are permitted to come into the station and "shadow" an area of the station that they have an interest in.  This is offered to high school students who are completing a project for a grade. This program is designed to help our youth explore careers that they believe they may want to pursue in college. 

During the period of this report, June 1, 2011 – May 31, 2012, WTVG has accepted five (5) student shadow projects.

 

Student                          St. Ursula Academy                           June 2011                             News Dept.

Student                          Maumee Valley                                  November 2011                  News Dept.

Student                          St. Johns Jesuit High School           May 2012                             IT Dept.                   

(3)     Job Fairs:  WTVG-TV is committed to participate in and/or co-sponsor job fairs with diverse participants over the next two years.  WTVG will participate by staffing a booth, providing information about careers in broadcasting, providing information about internship opportunities and collecting resumes.  WTVG will participate in job fairs that are well designed, widely advertised and attended by students, women, minorities, and disabled persons.  WTVG retains a file of resumes collected from each fair and may contact potentially qualified candidates as future job vacancies occur.  During the reporting period, WTVG has participated in one (1) job fair.

March 20, 2012 – Bowling Green State University; Summer Job/Internship Fair.  Human Resource Manager attended.

At a typical job fair, other local TV stations will be present as well.  Students are encouraged to leave their resumes and are spoken to in great length regarding open positions and internship opportunities; hundreds of students can be in attendance at a job fair.
