Prong 3 from January 22, 2012 to January 21, 2014 Outreach and Recruitment – 2 initiatives within a two-year period

Initiative 1
Establishment of an internship program designed to assist members of the community to acquire skills needed for broadcast employment.

During the 2013 reporting period, KVNO radio continued its policy of offering paid and unpaid internships and internships for college credit; in radio news reporting, on-air classical music hosting, audio production engineering, as well as instruction in the skills necessary for classical music-playlist programming and our music library database management.

KVNO also provides part-time employment opportunities for everyone in our community to work as on-air hosts when part-time board shift vacancies occur. These opportunities do not require previous broadcast experience and KVNO’s professional full-time staff and other personnel provide all the training that is necessary and required.

KVNO-FM has administrative oversight of the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s student managed and staffed college radio station called Mav Radio. Mav Radio is broadcast over the Omaha-Council Bluffs airwaves on our KVNO-HD2 digital broadcast programming stream. This operation is fully staffed and operated entirely by UNO student volunteers with a full-time UNO faculty advisor providing the day-to-day oversight of the operation. Students gain first-hand broadcast operations knowledge while participating in every aspect of radio station management and production. KVNO’s operations staff and engineering staff members provide oversight, instruction and technical support when necessary and maintain the student radio broadcast equipment. Students, faculty and staff members in any department or college on campus are invited to participate in Mav Radio productions.
           
During the 2013 reporting period, Brandon McDermott—a student at Metro Community College—worked as a paid intern in our radio news department. Brandon covers sports and local news for KVNO and is gaining valuable work experience while working under the supervision of the KVNO News Director.

KVNO collaborates throughout the academic year with the instructors and faculty members in the Radio I and II broadcasting classes at the UNO School of Communications. Students enrolled in these classes are offered the opportunity to have stories that they produce in class aired on KVNO. These students and faculty members have access to our studio facilities and equipment and those who express a desire to learn more after the completion of their classes are afforded the opportunity to apply for both paid and unpaid internships at KVNO.

 

KVNO provides opportunities for collaborations with print media journalists in our community. At this time, we broadcast a weekly movie review that is produced by two print reporters for “The Reader”, a weekly newspaper that is published in our community. We continue to seek out more alternative print media and online media collaborations and offer the opportunity for those who express an interest to learn how to produce their stories for broadcast on KVNO.

In 2013, we had three student interns earning college credit working under the supervision of the KVNO Music Director and one paid student intern working under the supervision of the KVNO News Director. One paid student intern interested in audio production engineering worked under the supervision of the KVNO Production Coordinator. We also had two paid interns, one student and one non-student, working part-time hosting jazz music programming on our KVNO HD3 programming stream. We had one paid part-time intern working on our website design and maintenance.
