WRHL-AM AND WYOT-FM SEU, ANNUAL EEO PUBLIC FILE REPORT

                                    July 25, 2023

 

STATEMENT OF EEO POLICY:

This EEO public file report is filed in compliance with section 73.2080c(6) of the FCC’s 2002 EEO rule.  This report has been prepared on behalf of the employment unit that is comprised of stations WRHL-AM and WYOT-FM, Rochelle, Illinois.

We are an equal opportunity employer, committed to providing broad outreach regarding job vacancies and we seek the help of local organizations in referring qualified applicants.  Organizations wishing to receive information about vacancies at the stations should contact Gary Petersen at Rochelle Broadcasting Company, 815-562-7001 and/or write to Director of Human Resources, P.O. Box 177, Rochelle, Illinois 61068 and/or e-mail [email protected].   For the purposes of this report, a vacancy was “filled” not when the offer was extended, but when the hire accepted the job offer.  A person was recorded as “interviewed” whether he or she was interviewed in person, or over the phone or via e-mail.

During the reporting period of July 26, 2022 through July 25 , 2023 WRHL-AM and WYOT-FM in compliance with FCC rules, would normally publicize vacancies for both stations by doing the following:  With the exception of internal promotions and rare hires requiring unusual confidentiality, Rochelle Broadcasting Company would use the following recruitment methods:  posting the positions on the station website, and internally through “word of mouth” and “on-air” announcements made on both stations.  Any job opening would be posted on the bulletin board in our building so that all employees were aware of the opening, in the event that someone might ask them about the position or if they knew of someone that might be interested.  On-air advertisements about the position would run on both stations to further reach out to the community about the opening.  We are also an active member of the local Chambers of Commerce.  These groups do a variety of functions, ranging from formal programs to informal meetings and social gatherings at which information concerning the needs of the members are discussed, including employment opportunities and challenges.  In our small, tight-knit communities, we have found that this is the primary and most effective means of alerting business leaders to our needs so that they can spread the word throughout the community.

 

 

SUPPLEMENTAL INITIATIVES 

Gary Petersen, one of the licensee’s principals, hosts frequent training sessions of the stations’ management personnel and employees.  This amounts to about 20 each year.  These sessions consist of management techniques including supervisory methods, business metrics, and sales techniques.  This will assist the stations’ management personnel and employees in advancing in their careers. 

The stations were part of three 2023 Job Fairs.  The first was the City of Rochelle on March 10th, then the Sycamore Chamber Job Fair on April 1st, and then the DeKalb Chamber Job Fair on April 27th.  Job seekers were invited to stop by and visit with local businesses and find out about jobs available.  Kris Wexell and Chuck O’Brien represented WRHL and WYOT at the Job Fairs.  This is a major outreach event for local businesses.  Inquiries are often received there concerning employment opportunities.
