Section 3: Supplemental (Non-Vacancy Specific) Recruitment Activities

Undertaken by Employment Unit


Covering Period: June 1, 2020 – May 31, 2021


Stations Comprising Station Employment Unit: WFXD, WKQS, WRUP


Overview:

As standard, all Network and Station Employment Policy statements were reinforced to all current employees and introduced to all new employees to indicate the following position of mediaBrew Communications Marquette Llc.(mBCM):

mediaBrew Communications Marquette Llc. and all its association stations in the Station Employment Unit is dedicated to affording equal opportunity to all qualified persons and that no person shall be discriminated against in employment on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, or sex. There are specific new outreach activities and record keeping required showing compliance, and every person at mediaBrew Communications Marquette Llc. is affected. Everyone from the janitor to the cake decorator, when classified under the rule as an employee, must be part of the process that ensures employment opportunities are disseminated in the widest possible manner, through multiple mediums, throughout our community.

Every effort has been taken by management, including many man-hours of time expended, to ensure full compliance with both the letter and spirit of the Equal Employment Opportunity Rules. As with last Summer, Spring and Fall, we also intend to participate in Job Fairs at the local university, continue to expand our employment contact list, and to improve our coordination with local community organizations to ensure successful future wide dissemination of specific job opportunities at mediaBrew Communications Marquette Llc. and to encourage the widest possible numbers of people to explore employment opportunities in the broadcast industry in general. The following is a good example in that spirit, and is broadcast regularly on our schedule to all stations in our Employment Unit:

mediaBrew Communications Radio Stations WFXD 103.3, WKQS 101.9, and WRUP 98.3 are looking for organizations that regularly distribute information about employment opportunities to job applicants or have job applicants to refer. If you organization would like to receive notification of job vacancies at our stations, please notify: Employment, c/o mediaBrew Communications Marquette Llc., 3060 US 41 West, Marquette, MI 49855. Email our stations at employment@broadcasteverywhere.com or phone 906-228-6800. mediaBrew Communications Stations, WFXD 103.3, WKQS 101.9, and WRUP 98.3 are Equal Opportunity Employers and encourage minorities and females to apply.



Outreach Summary

Job Fairs:

mediaBrew Communications personnel (Lauren Bareiss) attended the Northern Michigan University Virtual Fall Job Fair on Wednesday October 21, 2020. Our team had also attended the Innovate Marquette SmartZone Virtual Return North Professionals Career Fair on May 21, 2021. While efforts were strained by the efforts of COVID-19, we did communicate with several candidates for job openings and internships. While attending these job fair, we displayed information about our available part and full time positions including: Marketing Advisor, Web Designer and Cotent Creator, Studio Producer and Internship opportunities for our Multi-Media Internship. Skills emphasized were sales experience, graphic design, web design, news writing, community promotions, social networking and blogging, and on-air talent. The mediaBrew Communications representatives talked about intern positions, encouraging real life experience to students in Commercial Broadcast Radio and various other majors.

Community

mediaBrew Communications is regularly interacting with the community. Sunny 101.9 hosts a show decicated to a local high school sports and reaches out to the student athletes inviting them to the studios for a broadcast and tour. Several of our shows also bring in community members to speak on various different topics and broadcast local insight to the region. In August of 2020, mediaBrew Communications represnetatives (Lauren Bareiss, Sabrina LaForais, and Charles Williams) participated in a socially-distanced version of the NMU Fall Fest as a "Welcome Back" event for Northern Michigan University students. The event allowed us to reach out to students about the opportunities available through the station. Despite the event cancelations due to COVID-19, the station was able to attend a few of our annual events. During each, mediaBrew Communications' community involvement encourages people to learn about a new career path and apply to join the radio industry.

Training and Internships:

During 2020/2021, mediaBrew Communications provided hands on training to both new employees and company veterans. Hundreds of training sessions were completed during the course of this reporting period and employees were encouraged to use a special private website to further their skills. Among the topics covered are audio theory, audio concepts, modern media in radio, RDS broadcasts, script writing, copyright law, copy improvement, press releases, electronic documents and filing, public engagement through new media, basic writing skills from sentence structure to diction. Radio Sales Marketing training was offered to smaller groups, including music programming and policies, traffic training, and so on. One-on-one training in departments &ndash of both interns and employees – continued to increase in the last reporting year.

Ongoing Outreach Efforts:

mediaBrew Communications continually intends to increase our outreach sources for the future, including the possibility of additional interns from Broadcasting, Marketing and non-traditional majors from our local university, Northern Michigan University and our local high school, Marquette Senior High School. We also consider the invitation to our community to give their input on our local programming an outreach which may lead to individuals from non-traditional resources or venues. As we continue gathering more effective sources of outreach into our local community, we intend to introduce individuals to Broadcast Radio as an option by their contact with us in these outreach efforts. Under company policy Sunny 101.9's 8th Day Show Host also interviews each new employee on air to help spread information about joining the industry.
We maximize our efforts to improve our wide dissemination to people who otherwise might not have considered working in our industry, helping them find a new career path to apply to.
Overall, things were disrupted this year due to the COVID-19 Outbreak, however as soon as able, we will continue with our efforts to connect and reach new prospective applicants.

Going into the new EEO year, 2021-2022, we expect to continue to develope new relationships with community resources and groups like Connect Marquette and Innovate Marquette SmartZone to share future job opportunities in the radio industry and encourage the transition to a new career path.
