Supplemental (Non-Vacancy Specific)

Recruitment Activities Undertaken by KXO (AM) and KXO-FM.

 

 

1.    We have never experienced a tougher recruitment time frame for the Annual EEO Public File Report than July 16th, 2021 through July 15th, 2022.  We reached out to the usual resource of Elementary, Junior High, and High School career days without an application.

2.    It does look like in the future, we will be able to participate in our University’s and Junior College Career Fair.  This annual event is one of the largest in the County, is attended by 1500 + students, and takes place in the spring.  

 

3.    Our best resource for new employees is the Imperial Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Brawley Chamber. 

 

 

NARRATIVE STATEMENT

BROADCAST EEO PROGRAM REPORT: JULY 2022 KXO, INC.

 

KXO, Inc. (KXO) faces challenges typical of small-market broadcasters in rural areas. KXO believes that the pool of those interested in pursuing a career in broadcasting has become smaller over the years and those who do seek careers in broadcasting dream of landing jobs in larger markets. The economic environment that began with the Recession of 2008-2009 restricted KXO’s ability to offer new positions, but KXO nonetheless continued its outreach efforts. The emergence of the COVID-19 Pandemic posed a huge impediment to those efforts.

Prior to the pandemic, to attract talented staffers, and to show the broadcasting industry flag at career-oriented events, KXO actively participated in Job Fairs and Career Events. To try to reach potential employees, KXO has also availed itself of resources provided by the California Association of Broadcasters and the State Government.

With the onset of the pandemic, the service area of Stations KXO (AM) and KXOFM were hit particularly hard. Job Fairs and similar events were simply not on the calendar. It is our hope that as the pandemic relents, KXO will be able to avail itself of more traditional means of outreach.

Overall, KXO has found that the most productive recruiting source in terms of total numbers and the number of qualified applicants has been ads on its own radio stations and on its stations’ website. KXO believes that similarly situated broadcasters have had similar experiences.
