 This report covers the period from June 1, 2018-May 31, 2019, for the station employment unit consisting of station WCBC-AM, Cumberland, Maryland.

The station does air everyday a general ad looking for qualified people to apply for sales positions.

However, no interns were engaged with the station during this time period. Those students indicating an interest were looking for a paid position. WCBC was not in a position to have paid interns at this time.

EEO Narrative for License Renewal Application – 5/31/19

WCBC’s outreach in reference to Equal Employment Opportunities is based on a small market approach.

We have cultivated excellent working relationships with both of the local colleges as they both offer broadcast courses; as well as our local employment office, and various community organizations. In recent years, the station has added positions on the company's Facebook Page, along with the station's website.

Recruitment the last two years has been very minimal because of the current economic situation in our community as it directly relates to our business’ finances and the ability to hire. We have reduced our full time staff overall and have only hired a part-time clerical assistant and two salespeople in the past year.  One of those salespeople is no longer with the company as of February of 2019.

All advertising states we are an equal opportunity employer as does all information forwarded to our contact list when an opening is available.

At present, WCBC employs ten full time employees – 6 men and 4 women.

The intern programs at both Allegany College of Maryland and Frostburg State University have provided the opportunity for hundreds of students over the last 43 years to be part of WCBC’s outreach.  Each year, there are usually 4 or more interns who work up to 140 hours in the broadcast environment at WCBC over the course of the semester.  That has not bee the case in more recent years due to a change in the environment of internships.   Students are looking for paid internship opportunities, and WCBC has not been in a position to provide paid positions.  In the past, the internships were provided by WCBC as a non-cash, for credit only, opportunity. 

The station’s management participates in Career Days at our local schools as often as possible as well as local job fairs sponsored by schools, broadcast associations and the local chamber of commerce.

A scholarship in memory of one of WCBC’s long term employees, Jim Robey, has been established at Allegany College of Maryland.  The scholarship is specifically directed to a student majoring in broadcasting.

Management has also participated in webinars to provide continuing education about equal employment opportunities for those employees directly involved with hiring/firing.
