In the proceeding year, WYSO engaged in the following recruitment initiatives:
WYSO continued and expanded its “Community Voices” radio production training program, designed to assist members of the community to acquire skills needed for broadcast employment.
There were 15 people in a weekend-long workshop in November 2011. That workshop took place at the radio station and was taught by the General Manager and the Community Voices Coordinator
There were 12 people in a six month long course that began in January 2012 and ended in June 2012.Those classes were taught at the radio station by the General Manager and the Community Voices Coordinator.
WYSO engaged a prominent public radio producer to attend a training session and conduct a “master class.” And in a public presentation attended by more than 1,000 people in Dayton, that producer discussed the Community Voices project, hailing it as unique in public radio. WYSO subsequently received many inquiries about Community Voices.
WYSO also participated in public event known as a “Screenless Screening” hosted by the FilmDayton Festival, at which we discussed the details of Community Voices. About fifty members of the public attended. The General Manager and the Community Voices Coordinator conducted that event.
WYSO also partnered with a local arts education organization known as Muse Machine to teach fifteen middle school and high school basic radio production skills so they could in turn use those media techniques in their classrooms. Those classes were taught by the General Manager and the Community Voices Coordinator.
WYSO also began a training program for staff personnel to acquire video skills that will allow them to qualify for higher level positions. This project, known internally as Re-Invention, is part of a national documentary project called LOCALORE, funded by the CPB and AIR, the Association of Independents in Radio. A team of local filmmakers, funded by CPB and AIR has begun a five week training project for WYSO staff.
In the time period, WYSO also instituted a mentoring process for WYSO Underwriting Executives in which they receive advanced training for their sales techniques and sales tracking techniques. This mentoring is conducted by a station volunteer with many years experience in high level sales.
Also, more than 23 people were trained as interns and volunteer producers during the period. The trainings were conducted by WYSO staff in such areas as news writing and production, on-air announcing, field recording and digital audio editing.
Groups and organizations wishing to be put on the mailing list for notification of full- time vacancies should contact the station in writing as follows:
