    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.  WEEU will 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.  WEEU also 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.

    TRAINING PROGRAMS:

    During the time period of this report, (52 weeks), WEEU continued 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 2014  WEEU offered and awarded a $250.00 cash scholarship to The annual WEEU Radio Voices Scholarship winner is …

     

    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 on WEEU’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 Muhlenberg Elementary School.  The students learn a new word each week.  The ‘Word of the Week’ is a Monday morning feature on the WEEU Morning Show w/ Mike Keller, 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 is very active in the local community and raised more than $15,000 dollars for Mary’s Shelter in Reading, PA. Mary’s Shelter provides residential and non-residential services for pregnant women and women with newborns who are in need of a supportive environment because of a lack of suitable housing or favorable family relationships. WEEU’s Jo Painter held a live broadcast there on 2/26/14. Listeners also donated several thousand dollars’ worth of baby supplies including a generator.

    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.
