Long-Term Initiatives Taken

Spoke to local, Cross Roads Elementary School, fifth grade students about the history of radio and how they could get involved.

 

Palestine High School started new broadcasting classes which we were allowed to teach the first day to all of the classes about radio and what career fields are available.  We also extended a welcome to all to join our Explorer Program.

 

Furthered the education of our programming and sales representatives in their education of writing copy that is going to work for client.  Took Program Director to TAB convention to learn more about the radio industry, and what help  is available for him from the TAB.

 

Explorer Program extended through the East Texas Area Council for local high school students to learn and enrich their background in the Radio Industry – program is now evolving to more hands on with Student News Teams inside the local high schools where they will be writing, and producing news for our radio stations, and websites.  These new students will be nominated from their teachers at the schools.

 

We attended the Palestine Business Expo showing off all the different opportunities at the radio station.

 

Held several meetings with staff to review our hiring process, and improve our outreach in the community to especially the Hispanic community.
