Internship Opportunity

 

WRHL-AM/WYOT-FM, Rochelle, IL seeks part-time interns to carry out a variety of tasks including updating weather forecasts, operating boards during local sporting events and completing affidavits. By the end of the internship, the intern will learn how a real-life, for-profit small-market radio station operates; one would learn all of the moving parts, all the titles, duties and basic structure of the radio business, and would, in addition, build radio and TV broadcasting contacts to form a solid foundation for a future career in broadcasting. While specific start and end dates remain flexible, internships run January-April, May-August and September-December. To apply, send a resume and letter stating what you can bring to the table (e-mail is fine) to Jay Burlison, WRHL-AM/WYOT-FM, call with questions to (815) 562-7001 x-17.

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

                                    July 25, 2017

 

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 gary@wrhl.net.   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 20, 2016 through July 25, 2017 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.

 

 

Long-term recruitment initiatives include an “in-house” internship program involving local college and high school students, or someone from the community.  The program provides programs, newscasts, promotional events and work with talent.  In the reporting year, a total of three interns were utilized by the company.  The stations were part of the 2017 Career Fair on April 20th at Kishwaukee College.  Job seekers were invited to stop by and visit with local businesses and find out about any jobs available.  Kris Wexell and Jay Burlison represented WRHL and WYOT at the Job Fair.   This is a major outreach event for local businesses.  Inquiries are often received there concerning employment opportunities.  At the Job Fair we set up a booth and discussed possible future job openings and internship possibilities with several students who attended.
