INITIATIVES

The employment unit engaged in the following outreach initiatives in accordance with various elements of FCC Rule 73.2080(c)(2):

Established an internship program designed to assist members of the community to acquire skills needed for broadcast employment.  KSTK offers internships for local high school students.  These are semester or academic year placements with daily work assignments that include news gathering, audio editing and digital production for web posting.  Students work with the news and management staff to contribute to studio production, local news and live broadcasts. During the 2019-2020 school year, the writing and audio proficiency of KSTK’s intern earned her statewide coverage and recognition. 

Established training programs designed to enable station personnel to acquire skills that would qualify them for higher level positions.  KSTK offers cross training for all personnel that provides opportunity for all to pursue the positions that are available.  It is our goal to have staff skilled in all station operations so that vacation and sick leave can be accommodated.  This lends itself to having skilled individuals ready when positions open up.
