73.2080(2)(v) Establishment of an internship program designed to assist members of the community to acquire skills needed for broadcast employment.

 

Description of Initiative:

 

KSLU once again offered internships to Mandeville High School students who were interested in working in the radio industry. The internship enabled the students to experience first-hand the demands and benefits of working in the radio industry. The program also served as a recruiting tool in an effort to have the interns enroll at Southeastern Louisiana University upon graduation and work at KSLU during their college career. The participants completed the radio station’s training manual which explains the day-to-day radio station operations and the expectations of the on-air staff. The program also taught the interns FCC rules and regulations and gave them hands-on experience in on-air performance, digital audio editing and news reporting. Six students participated in the program.

 

 

73.2080(2)(viii) Establish a training program designed to enable station personnel to acquire skills that could qualify them for higher-level positions.

 

Description of Initiative:

 

General manager Todd Delaney developed an instruction guide showing how to schedule program logs at KSLU. The guide details the steps required to generate a music and traffic log using Selector software, and export that log for use with the station’s ENCO automation software. This is a skill required by the program director – a position which will re-open once the university is able to fund it (hopefully within the next year or two). Any KSLU worker could use this instruction guide to bolster their program director skill set and apply for the position once it becomes advertised.

 

 

73.2080(2)(x) Participate in at least four (4) events or programs relating to career opportunities in broadcasting sponsored by educational institutions.

 

Description of Initiative:

 

 

General Manager Todd Delaney served as the advisor for Southeastern Louisiana University’s chapter of the National Broadcasting Society. He spoke with the group on several occasions and discussed the various job opportunities available in the radio industry including digital production, sales and programming. He also stressed the importance of securing an internship during one’s college career to build one’s skills and resume and get a foot in the door before graduating from college.

 

General Manager Todd Delaney spoke to several broadcasting classes at Mandeville High School. He gave a history of technology in the radio industry and its current landscape. He also stressed the importance of developing a large skill set so that students will be versatile in the workforce. Delaney suggested that students first learn to write for broadcast, then practice on-air delivery in radio and then work at a television station before graduating from college.

 

Underwriting Representative Chad Pierce spoke to the students in a copywriting class at Southeastern Louisiana University about sales in the radio industry. Students were surprised to hear that even though radio salespeople tend to work strictly on commission, they tend to be some of the highest paid employees of radio stations. Pierce also mentioned that getting into the sales side of the business is one of the easiest ways to get into the radio industry. He mentioned his on-air experience with remote broadcasts leading him to do more production work for one station – something that he enjoyed and learned from. He encouraged students to intern with a radio station if they had an interest in the industry.

 

General Manager Todd Delaney attended a freshman orientation event at Southeastern Louisiana University. He spoke on-on-one with students interested in joining KSLU and the National Broadcasting Society. Delaney highly recommended that the students become actively involved in campus media and organizations to build their resumes and experience before graduating. He said told the incoming freshmen that experience, talent and passion tends to be more important than solely a classroom experience when it comes to securing a job in the radio industry.

 

73.2080(2)(vii) Participate in scholarship programs designed to assist students interested in pursuing a career in broadcasting.

 

The KSLU radio scholarship program continued to offer a $500 scholarship to undergraduate students at Southeastern Louisiana University studying communication. The scholarship application stipulates that:

  1. The student must be a current KSLU student worker.
  2. The student must have a 2.50 or higher cumulative GPA.
  3. The student must be enrolled as a full time student.
  4. The student must demonstrate a strong work ethic and must be active in University and/or community service activities.
  5. To be considered for the scholarship, the student must submit three letters of recommendation from Southeastern faculty members
  6. The student is eligible to receive this scholarship one time only.

 

No qualifying students applied for the KSLU scholarship this year.
