Prong 3 from January 22, 2013 to January 21, 2015 Outreach and Recruitment – 2 initiatives within a two-year period

Initiative 1
Establishment of an internship program designed to assist members of our community in acquiring the skills that are necessary for employment in radio broadcasting.
During the 2014 reporting period, KVNO-FM offered paid and unpaid internships as well as qualified internship opportunities for college credit. These internships include employment opportunities in radio news reporting, on-air classical music hosting, audio production engineering, working with the KVNO-FM business office, classical music playlist programming and music library database management.
KVNO-FM provides part time paid and unpaid internship opportunities that are open to everyone in our community. These opportunities include working as on-air hosts when part time board shift vacancies occur. These employment opportunities do not require previous broadcast experience and the KVNO-FM professional full-time staff and other designated personnel provide all the training /coaching that is necessary and required to perform the job.
KVNO has administrative oversight of the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) student managed and staffed college radio station called Mav Radio. Mav Radio is broadcast over the KVNO-HD2 program stream. This student run operation is fully staffed and managed by UNO student/faculty/staff volunteers with a full time UNO faculty staff advisor providing routine oversight of the entire operation. Students gain valuable first hand broadcast operations knowledge while participating in every aspect of broadcast management and production. KVNO’s full time Operations and Engineering staff provide technical support and advice to Mav Radio as well as the responsibility for maintaining the student radio broadcast equipment. Students, faculty and staff from all departments on campus are invited to participate in Mav Radio productions.
KVNO-FM collaborates throughout the academic year with the instructors and faculty members of the UNO Radio I and Radio II broadcasting classes in the UNO School of Communications. University students enrolled in these classes have an opportunity to have the best of their pre produced news stories approved for broadcast on KVNO-FM during our news blocks and to work with the professional KVNO-FM News Director. Students enrolled in these classes who are interested in pursuing a career in broadcasting are encouraged to apply for either paid or unpaid internships at KVNO-FM.                            
KVNO-FM engages in collaborations with other profit and not for profit businesses and organizations in our community. During 2014 we collaborated with a popular weekly news and entertainment publication in our community. Two of the publications entertainment and film reviewers produce and host a weekly film review segment on KVNO-FM.
In 2014, KVNO-FM worked with and provided digital audio editing training to a local author and university professor to produce and host a program and program segments on literature that featured interviews with published authors and segments from their lectures and public readings.
In 2014, KVNO-FM employed a part time student that is completing his Master’s Degree in Music from the University of Missouri at Kansas City (UMKC) to produce a pre-recorded series of radio programs on classical chamber music called Connections and Reflections.
In 2014, KVNO-FM employed a part time UNO student intern to host our weekend afternoon programs, voice track overnight shifts and serve as a substitute announcer.)
In 2014, KVNO-FM employed a UNO student intern to work with our KVNO Music Director in auditioning and cataloging music from the Omaha Symphony archives. This individual also programs music under the Music Directors supervision.
In 2014, two UNO students worked as unpaid student interns assisting the KVNO Music Director in music library database management and music programming.
