Combined Communications, Inc.
Equal Opportunity Employment Program

    Radio Stations KBND AM, KLRR FM, KTWS FM, KMTK FM and KWXS FM serve the Central Oregon community and provide equal employment opportunity to all job applicants.  The stations operate as a unit to insure that maximum available community resources are utilized to generate qualified job applicants from all segments of our ethnically diverse community.

    The following outlines the stations’ program of policies and procedures to assure all qualified candidates, both within and outside the community we serve, who might be interested in employment with our company, can learn about and apply for any positions that might become available:

1.    A list of recruitment sources to be utilized to generate applicants for every full-time job opportunity will be maintained, periodically revised and updated.
2.    On-air advertisements are periodically used for positions that do not require radio specific technical, operational or talent skills.  The job advertisements are generally for sales, accounting and administrative positions.
3.    Notices of all full-time employment opportunities will be widely distributed and dated copies of such notices will be retained.
4.    All full-time existing staff are notified of any new openings.  The staff has been encouraged to refer anyone they know that might be qualified, or to apply themselves if they are interested and feel they qualify.
5.    Local, regional and national job search web sites are periodically tried and evaluated for effectiveness.
6.    Combined Communications, Inc. will coordinate efforts to monitor and assure the execution of this plan.  Combined will train and update staff on EYE issues.
7.    The company conducts an internship program for college/high school students in the area.  Many part-time employment opportunities are filled by interns.  
8.    All employment notices, material and advertising, whether written or broadcast, will include the phrase “Combined Communications is an equal opportunity employer.”
9.    Each producer of Local on-air programming on all stations including news, public service/public affairs, commercial content and announcer entertainment/commentary, are routinely counseled regarding sensitivity to minority, gender, and other diversity issues in order to foster the perception and the reality within our community that Combined Communications actively promotes equal employment opportunity for all, regardless of race, sex, religion or national origin.

Combined Communications will routinely and systematically review, the effectiveness of this program and make periodic modifications that may be required to fulfill the goal of offering equal opportunity to all applicants and to insure these applicants represent all communities within our service area.

2.    OUTREACH INITIATIVES

Outreach initiatives that Combined Communications has undertaken in the past year include the following:

1.    Combined Communications  sponsored a group tour of kids from Bend Park and Recreation. On August 29, 2013.   The tour began in the lobby with a discussion of the evolution of radio as a medium.  They were then taken to the conference room and discussed how radio takes planning and supervision.  They were then taken to the general production studio and shown the microphone technology we use to pre-record ads and interviews for the stations.  Then they were shown the technology behind broadcasting over the airwaves.  Finally they were taken to the studios, where they were able to watch the execution of the radio shows and questions were fielded about being a DJ.  MJ Loftus Program Director of KLRR 101.7 and his staff led the tour.

2.    Two tours were given to the students of Abilitree who were interested in the broadcast field, one in March and one in May.  They were shown around the facility and conversations were held about how radio worked.  Donna James, Program Director of KMTK, conducted the tours.

3.    On April 9th 2013, KWXS went to Mt. View High School for a lunch Q&A.  Lonnie Chapin, Program Director of KWXS, talked to the students about radio broadcasting.  He shared how and why he got into radio along with a variety of questions.

4.    On March 13, 2013, Lori Raab, News Director for Combined Communications spoke to the Deschutes County Republican Group about radio, the new business and answered questions from group members  She explained how they can get their events, news stores and Public Service Announcements on the air, promoting the radio business.

5.     During the Deschutes Country Fair July 25th and 26th  KMTK sponsored a fundraiser for the FFA.  During that fundraiser, the kids were  taught about how radio worked for them.  They were put on the air both to promote the FFA and to get the experience of radio.  The fundraiser raised over $4600 for the kids.  Donna James, Program Director of KMTK led both the fundraiser and the discussions with the kids about radio.

6.    Three of our top management people were sent to Fred Pryor Seminar, “The essentials of Human Resources and the Law” in July 2013 to further their knowledge in this area.  The seminar provided each participant with .6 CEU’s of further education.  Combined Communications funded this class.  Employees attending this seminar were Luci Cook, CFO, Shannon Hipps, Traffic Director and Brandon Sizemore Editor and Sales.

7.    On September 11, 2013 Brad Hinman of Summit High School brought his Senior Vocational Class for a tour and information on job opportunity options.  The group visited all our radio stations and with the help of Production Director Dave Stalker they were informed how the rolls of Sales and Traffic are linked together to make the radio stations run effectively.
