Supplemental (Non-Vacancy Specific) Recruitment Activities Undertaken by KXO(AM) and KXO-FM

  Gene Brister, President of KXO, Inc., and General Manager of Stations KXO(AM) and KXO-FM, participated in a FCC webinar, Tuesday, March 2nd, 2021. The webinar was put on by Broadcast1Source, TLP Law, and the California Broadcasters Association.  It featured over one hour of FCC EEO training.  Each participant received a certificate of participation.

  Carroll Buckley, Vice President of KXO, Inc., attended a virtual Career Day at Booker T. Washington Elementary School in El Centro that ran from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., on April 21st, 2021.  According to the school, the Zoom event was attended by almost all the students.  Mr. Buckley was able to describe what we do in radio broadcasting and to answer a number of questions from the students.

During the pandemic that began in late 2019 / early 2020, Imperial County, where we are located, was considered one of the “hottest” places in the Nation for the Covid-19 Virus.  We were locked down for almost a year.  Our economy was devastated.  No one wanted to put on a Career Day or to participate in one.
