Equal Employment Opportunity

In November 2002, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted new rules and policies to a) establish Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) programs; b) provide vacancy notices to recruitment sources, and; c) undertake additional outreach measures as a part of filling job vacancies. These new rules became effective March 10, 2003.

To document its EEO efforts, KMUW is required to place an annual EEO report in the station’s local public file and post the report to the station’s website, on the station’s broadcast license renewal filing anniversary date, February 1.
