(A) Initiative: Internship Program
During the reporting period, Noalmark Broadcasting Corporation implemented an internship program. The internship program is designed to give students the opportunity to experience the careers available in the radio broadcasting industry. The internship program chooses interns from applicants who express an interest in the radio industry.
Interns are exposed to the various operations of a radio station which may include some combination of on-air work, show production, remote broadcasts, engineering, traffic, billing, administrative assistance, sales, commercial production and board operation, depending to some extent upon the interests of the intern and the needs of the station. We currently have two interns that are college students.

A training session was held with upper level management on September 26, 2022. The session entailed a comprehensive review of the FCC EEO regulations and the Company’s ongoing compliance efforts.
(C) Participation in general outreach efforts through jobs banks, internet programs & similar programs
Jobs are posted on some or all of the following websites: accessarkla.com, allaccess.com. These websites get thousands of hits each month, thereby getting the word out about the job openings to many individuals. Jobs are also listed on arkbroadcasters.org, which is the Arkansas Broadcasters Association website. Upper-Level jobs are sent to the Arkansas Broadcasters Association and the New Mexico Broadcasters Association, all of which have substantial female and minority participation.
