     Participating employees            Bill Christian & D. J. Schimizzi                  

     Host/Sponsor of activity:  NYS Broadcasters Association                                          

     Brief description of activity and station participation:  WBGT participated in a virtual Broadcasting Career Fair on the Internet put together by the New York State Broadcasters Association.  Over 400 prospective applicants attended.   Both resumes and applications were accepted for both stations, and information regarding both stations was distributed to interested attendees.  Resumes and applications that were collected and are being stored at WBGT-TV in Rochester.

 

2).  Established internship and co-op program. Ongoing. Jennifer Mattison, On-Site Coordinator.

WBGT has always been committed to the education of youth interested in the broadcasting field by way of internship programs that are designed to meet their individual needs. This program has included students from a diverse age range and educational background. These students have come from area high schools such as Corning East, Corning West, and Addison High School.  As well, students have also been recruited from area colleges such as:  Corning Community College, Binghamton University, Mansfield University and Alfred University.

 

Participating students have learned broadcasting-related skills under the close supervision of all station employees. Areas of study that have been explored are:  commercial production, website editing , public service coordination, traffic assistance, master control and various other aspects of videography and editing. Length of participation has also varied depending on individual needs, and has ranged from one-day shadowing experiences all the way to year-long internships. All internships have been on a volunteer basis, with employee/instructor evaluation and feedback given for the student to earn academic credit.

 

 

3). Co-operative Job training program through BOCES.

Jennifer Mattison, coordinator.

Vision Communications successfully participated in a year-long work/study program to train students for careers in broadcasting. The unique partnership with this regional trade school allowed for students to get real life training, while getting paid by the television station and receiving high school or college credit. The school partially reimbursed the television station for this part time position. Because the program lasted longer than a typical internship, the students receive in-depth training and ultimately perform the task of a true employee. Students that have completed this program previously were hired outright by the TV station for part time and eventually full time employment. Areas of training include master control, traffic, production and accounting.

 

4). Scholarship Program. DJ Schimizzi, coordinator. During our High School Football games of the week, WBGT awarded “student of the game” scholarships promoting both sportsmanship and academics. Schools were probed for input to recognizing not just good athletes but more importantly good students. On-air recognition and a modest college scholarship was presented.
