E-Comm KAMS KALM KHOM KBMV Radio Stations 2017

It is the policy of E-Communications LLC., Radio Stations KAMS, KALM, KHOM and KBMV to provide equal employment opportunity to all qualified individuals without regard to race, color, religion, national origin or sex in all personnel actions including recruitment, evaluation, selection, promotion, compensation, training and termination.

It is also our policy to promote the realization of equal employment opportunity through positive, continuing programs of specific practices designed to insure the full realization of equal employment opportunity without regard to race, color, religion, national origin or sex.

To make this policy effective, and to ensure conformance with the rules and regulations of the Federal Communications Commission, we have adopted an Equal Employment Opportunity Program, which was instated effective March 10, 2003. A full description of pertinent job openings and recruitment procedures may be found in our public file.

For the period October 1, 2016 to September 30, 2017, KAMS/KALM/KHOM/KBMV had one full time employment hire for On Air.

This was a distress situation where our senior air talent and program director left with little noitce and unexpected. This put a lot of stress at this studio where only two full time people work. We made a quick hire of a former on air talent who had recently lost a job elsewhere outside of broadcasting. We reviewed applications received from our recruiting efforts during the year and found this was the only broadcast experienced applicant on file. It just made sense to make this hire. When stations KAMS/KALM/KHOM/KBMV are searching for prospective employees, sources of recruitment include
