            The Equal Employment Opportunity Policy that would be followed at

radio stations KVOE(AM & FM) and KFFX(FM), Emporia, Kansas would be

that of the FCC’s Equal Employment Opportunity Program.

            To more completely indicate what Emporia’s Radio Stations, Inc.’s EOE

Policy would be, it would include the following:

  1. General Policy

It would be our policy to provide equal employment opportunity to all qualified individuals without regard to their race, color, religion, national origin or sex in all personnel actions including recruitment, evaluation, selection, promotion, compensation, training and termination.

            It would also be our policy to promote the realization of equal employment opportunity through a positive, continuing program of specific practices designed to ensure the full realization of equal employment opportunity with out regard to race, color, religion, national origin or sex.

            To make this policy effective, and to ensure conformance with the Rules and Regulations of the Federal Communications Commission, our Equal Employment Opportunity Program would include the following elements:

  1. Responsible for Implementation

Lee Schroeder, the General Manager of the radio stations KVOE(AM & FM) and KFFX (FM), will be responsible for the administration and implementation of our Equal Employment Opportunity Program. It would also be the responsibility of all persons making employment decisions with respect to recruitment, evaluation, selection, promotion, compensation, training and termination of employees to ensure that our policy and program is adhered to and that no person is discriminated against in employment because of race, color, religion, national origin or sex.

  1. Policy Dissemination

To assure that all members of the staff are aware of our equal employment opportunity policy and their individual responsibilities in carrying out this policy the following communication efforts will be made:

The station’s employment application form will contain a notice informing prospective employees that discrimination because of race, color, religion, national origin or sex is prohibited and that they may notify the appropriate local, state or federal agency if they believe they have been the victim of discrimination.

Appropriate notices will be posted informing applicants and employees that the station is an Equal Opportunity Employer and of their right to notify an appropriate local, state or federal agency if they believe they have been the victim of discrimination.

We would seek the cooperation in relation to minorities and women, and to foster their full consideration in filling job vacancies, we would utilize the following recruitment procedures:

We will attempt to maintain systematic communication, both orally and in writing, with minority and women organizations to encourage the referral of qualified minority and female applicants. This will include local chapters for a) National Organization of Women, and b) NAACP.

In addition to organizations, which specialize in minority and women candidates, we would also deal with employment services, including state employment agencies, which refer job candidates without regard to their race, color, religion, national origin or sex. Examples of such agencies are: a) Kansas State Employment Service, and b) Local Offices of National Placement Services.

When we recruit prospective employees from educational institutions such recruitment efforts would include area schools and colleges with significant minority and female enrollments. These include: a) Emporia State University, b) Kansas State University, c) University of Kansas, and d) Flint Hills Technical College.

When utilizing media for recruitment purposes, help-wanted advertisements would always include a notice that we are an Equal Opportunity Employer and contain no indications, either explicit or implied, or a preference for one sex over another.

When we place employment advertisements in printed media, some of such advertisements would be placed in media which have significant circulation or are of particular interest of minorities and women. These include: a) Broadcasting Magazine, b) NAB Publications, and c) Emporia Gazette.

We would also encourage present employees, particularly minority and female employees, to refer minority and female candidates for existing and future job openings.

  1. Training

Station resources and/or needs are such that we do not choose to institute specific programs for upgrading the skills of employees. However, we would provide certain instances of on-the-job training to upgrade the skills of employees as follows: sales training, new materials and tools for sales people. We would also, where possible, provide intern training for students with a broadcast interest.

This document is designed to assist you, your club, your agency or other organization in the preparation and distribution of Public Service Announcements (PSAs). While PSAs are often aired free by broadcast stations, many end up in the wastebasket before they are broadcast because they are hard to read, have basic information missing, or are sent without sufficient lead time. We'll give you a few pointers, followed by a simple form which can be filled out and submitted to us.

1) Include All Necessary Information: While this may seem like a simple thing, you would be surprised at the number of PSAs we receive which do not have a date for the event. They'll say "tonight," for example, but even if the PSA arrives via fax, we are uncertain of which night "tonight" is. Include who is invited to attend, the date and hours of the event, the place where it will be held, the type of event, why it is taking place, and a contact number for both the public and the media. Keep it short. Long, full-page PSAs are rarely read due to time constraints.

2) Identify Yourself or Organization: You should always identify yourself or organization clearly somewhere in your PSA. In many cases, this is evident from the information -- however, if is not, you should include it somewhere on the page.

3) Phonetic Pronunciations: Many PSAs are skipped-over by broadcasters because names or places mentioned in them cannot be easily pronounced. Rather than sound illiterate or out-of-touch, announcers will often toss a PSA that does not include a phonetic pronunciation for easily confused proper names. Smith is Smith, but Smithe could be SMITH, SMYTH of SMITHEE. Without a guide, you'll either have a mispronounced name in your PSA when it's read on-the-air, or it won't get on-the-air at all. The proper way to show pronunciation is -- Smithe (pron: SMYTH).

4) Release Date: Timing is everything. If you send us a PSA far in advance of an event, it may get lost. If you send it two days beforehand, chances are it will be too late to include it. A good rule of thumb is to send your PSA 10 days in advance. And, do not include more than one event in each PSA!

5) Cost of Broadcast: As a general rule, we are happy to broadcast, at no charge, meeting and event notices for civic and non-profit groups. However, if you purchase advertising in other media, we cannot air your announcements free of charge. (There is a misconception that because the FCC governs the technical aspects of radio, that we are somehow obligated to run free advertising for public service entities. The truth is, if you pay to put an ad in the paper or elsewhere, don't ask us then to run it free. We're a business, too.)

6) Time of Broadcast: All PSAs are broadcast subject to time availability. We cannot guarantee a PSA will be broadcast a specific number of times nor at any specific time.

7) Paid PSAs: If you wish to purchase regular commercial airtime, we offer a discount for qualified non-profit organizations. Please call our Business Office at 620-342-1400 if you are interested in paid advertising.

To submit a PSA, email it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or fax it to 620-342-0804.

***A note to political committees and candidates: To ensure fairness to all candidates and avoid the appearance of favoritism, we do not provide free announcements of any sort for political campaigns. Please contact us for paid political advertising.
