Companies Big And Small Get EEO Audits

0

On June 12, 2017, the Media Bureau mailed the second of its Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) audit letters for 2017 to randomly selected radio stations. Among the recipients are stations owned by such companies as Alpha Media, Salem Media Group, Univision, and CBS Radio.


In accordance with the provisions of Section 73.2080(f)(4) of the Commission’s EEO rules, the FCC annually audits the EEO programs of randomly selected broadcast licensees.

Each year, approximately 5% of all radio and television stations are selected for EEO audits.

For stations that have a website and five or more full-time employees, it is a must to post the most recent EEO public file report on the station(s) website by the deadline by which it must be placed in the public file. If your station or employment unit does not have its own website, but its corporate site contains a link to a site pertaining to the station or unit, then the station or unit’s most recent EEO public file report must be linked to either the station or unit’s site or the general corporate site.

This posting will be examined as part of the audit, and failure to post the required report on a station website is a violation of the EEO Rule and subject to sanctions, including a forfeiture.

Among the stations selected at random include the legendary KDKA-AM 1020 in Pittsburgh, owned by CBS Radio; Alpha Media’s KLAK-FM 97.5 in Tom Bean, Tex., and KKIQ-FM 101.7 in Livermore, Calif.; iHeartMedia‘s KGB-FM 101.5 in San Diego; Entravision‘s KLOK-FM 99.5 in Greenfield, Calif., serving Monterey-Salinas; and Univision’s two FMs serving San Diego, KLNV-FM 102.9 and KLQV-FM 106.5.
