    INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES:

    WEEU Staff are available to work with college interns in the fall and winter semesters.  The interns have an opportunity to learn skills in a variety of radio positions from news-writing to promotions, sales and production.  The intern is typically in his or her senior year of college. WEEUwill work with the intern to help them meet the requirements necessary to get credits for the internship for the college if it offers such a program.  The internship usually requires approximately 30 hours a week. WEEUalso offers ‘shadow’ opportunities to students who seek them for school projects or career programs.  These are typically one day experiences shadowing a professional at the radio station.  These are unpaid internships.

    In addition  WEEUworked with 2 student interns during the summer.  Specifically

    • Rachelle Benner fromTownsonUniversityworked with our sales department from 6/4/12 through 8/17/12.  She worked from 9 – 4 Mon – Fri and learned how to create marketing packages for various programs and present them to potential clients.
    • Jack Goodwilli fromTempleUniversityworked with our air staff, and produced our local morning talk show from 6/6/12 – 7/27/12.   He worked from 8:30 to Noon and learned all aspects of producing a local open forum talk show, show prep, call screening, and show production.

     

    TRAINING PROGRAMS:

    During the time period of this report, (52 weeks), WEEUcontinued working with students from various regional high schools, providing them with a hands-on opportunity to participate in all aspects of the actual live talk-radio broadcast of a weekly show for and about teens. Known as “RADIO VOICES” this weekly, one-hour talk-radio show involves students with every aspect of the show including pre-production, selection of topics, board operation, panelist duties, interaction with listeners/callers, and follow through.  The opportunity provides a realistic training opportunity, allowing students to consider whether or not a career in this field might be something they want to pursue beyond high school.  (78 students)

    SCHOLARSHIPS:

    In March of 2013  WEEUoffered and awarded a $250.00 cash scholarship to Amy Kirkpatrick of Sinking Spring.  The scholarship is available to one of the students who regularly participated in WEEU’s weekly ‘RADIO VOICES’ talk-radio program for teens during the previous year.  By their involvement with the radio show and a through a review process with the show’s one adult host who administers the program, as well as the one overall VOICES radio and print adult administrator, candidates had to demonstrate a desire to pursue a career in broadcasting or communications, and needed to have had a solid record of enthusiastic participation onWEEU’s Radio Voices Teen Panel Talk Show.

    LITERACY AND THE COMMUNITY:

    WEEU has developed a literacy program that interfaces with the curriculum and students at MuhlenbergElementary School.  The students learn a new word each week.  The ‘Word of the Week’ is a Monday morning feature on Charlie & Co, WEEU’s morning drive radio show.  A student records the word, its’ definition and use in a sentence.  The segment airs at 8:20.  The student body listens and then incorporates that word into their reading program.  At the end of each quarter students write a story using all the words.  A Student is awarded a prize for best use of the words.  At the end of the year there is a school assembly celebrating the words, stories and students.   

     

    WEEU Radio Narrative Statement:

    WEEU’s outreach initiatives demonstrate a firm commitment to interaction with the community in ways that include mentoring students, participating in job fairs, conducting broadcast learning seminars, offering internships and scholarships, and producing a weekly teen radio talk show for students from all school districts in the community.

    WEEU is very pleased with the results of our weekly teen talk radio program, RADIO VOICES, as this effort has given the students actual hands-on experience with all aspects of producing and participating in a weekly radio talk show.  As an added bonus, the show is popular with teen and adult callers, and as such, it gives the students an opportunity to think on their feet as they field calls that generally center on a topic of the week.  There is generally a panel of three to four teens on the show each week.  Most participants are juniors and seniors in high school.

    WEEU morning show host and management also accompanied the Muhlenberg Elementary School Students on their trip to the PA State Senate Chambers inHarrisburgin the fall of 2012. ThereStateSenator Judy Schwank introduced the students and WEEU Staff on the Senate Floor and presented a Proclamation in recognition of the Literacy Program and the melding of the students and curriculum with WEEU for broadcast to the entire community.

    These types of efforts on the part of WEEU and its employees provides broad outreach and realistic opportunities to persons in the community who may be interested in a broadcasting career.

    WEEU is an equal opportunity employer.  It is the policy of WEEU to provide equal employment opportunity to all qualified individuals without regard to their race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation or any other characteristic protected by law, in all personnel actions.
