EEO No! Next Round of Audits Under Way

4

FCCIt is important for broadcasters to cast a wide net when recruiting new employees, if they wish to stay on the FCC’s good side. Randomly selected stations are now on the bubble for FCC scrutiny.


Some stations are so small they do not have to comply with EEO regs, but all stations have to file a report regardless of eligibility status.

There are a wide variety of questions that need to be answered for each vacancy the station attempted to fill, and the rules apply to both owned and LMA’d stations.

Here are the radio stations that have been selected in this year’s random drawing.

  1. It seems like an exceptionally high number of non-coms FM stations that were picked – many of which seem to be religious broadcasters? Is the Commish targeting this group?

  2. No major markets? The only way to truly change the culture is to start big, this “random” selection process needs qualifiers that include market size.

  3. The FCC’s EEO program is one of the more classic examples of hidden agenda legislation plaguing American Broadcasting. Employment discrimination is a morale issue virtually impossible to define, much less legislate with any degree of effectiveness.
    CFR (Code of Fed. Regs)73.2080 plus the 119 pages of additional legal gobbledegook contained in MM Docket No. 98-204 Released Nov. 20, 2002 all of which continue to serve no other purpose than to complicate compliance and prompting licensees to contact their legal counsels at outrageous prices for “assistance”. (See Mike Dudding’s Article at http://www.theBDR.net) Mike paid $6,000 for legal “assistance” to “properly” prep an EEO audit response when they were first initiated.
    For 17 years licensees paid hundreds of dollars for my wife and I to conduct “mock” inspection certifications providing a “three year grace period from “random official FCC inspections”. The fear of the Federal Communications Commission among broadcasters is pandemic as they shell out million$ in preposterous legal costs and mock inspection costs.
    Perhaps it’s time to address “hidden agenda legislation”?
    Respectfully, Ken Benner, NCE, CBRE, Exec. Dir., Coalition for FCC Transparency
