DESCRIPTION OF SUPPLEMENTAL OUTREACH

 

INITIATIVES SHEET-YEAR 2015

 

Continuation of an internship program.  This internship program is designed to educate students about careers in radio broadcasting.  Any student is eligible to apply for the internships. The internships are available for the spring, summer, and fall semesters. Each candidate is interviewed by the stations’ Operations Manager. The number of interns selected depends upon the number of applicants and the projected workload during the internship period. Management at the stations works with administrators at local schools to locate eligible and interested students. Some of the duties an intern may perform include, but are not limited to the following: music research, on-air board operation, clerical work, phone answering, accompanying announcers on remote broadcasts, assisting with promotion duties, commercial writing, production of commercials, music scheduling, call screening and scheduling of guests.

 

This summer with support provided by the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association Gamma Broadcasting provided an internship to Ruth LaRagione [laragioner@rider.edu]. This internship ran from June 1 through august 22, 2015.

 

Vox Berkshire Radio Group/Gamma Broadcasting  participated in a Job Fair with Berkshire Works on September 30, 2015 from 9am until 1pm at The Crown Plaza in Pittsfield.  The Job Fair was promoted on all of our radio stations with at least 7 promos a day from 9148/2015 until 9/29/2015. Attending and representing Vox Berkshire Radio Group/Gamma Broadcasting: Todd Lee, Operations Manager and Victoria Spenser, Sales Manager.
