FCC CONTINUES 2012 EEO AUDITS

On June 7, 2012, the Federal Communications Commission mailed the second of its Equal Employment
Opportunity (EEO) audit letters for 2012 to randomly selected radio stations. In accordance with the
provisions of Sections 73.2080(f)(4) and 76.77(d) of the Commission’s EEO rules, the FCC annually audits
the EEO programs of randomly selected broadcast licensees and multi-channel video programming
distributors (MVPDs). Each year, approximately five percent of all radio and television stations and MVPDs
are selected for these EEO audits. The Commission mailed the first EEO audit letters this year to randomly
selected radio and television stations on February 16, 2012.
Attached are a list of the radio stations to which the audit letters were sent on June 7, as well as the text of
the June 7, 2012 audit letter. The list and the letter can also be viewed by accessing the Media Bureau’s
current EEO headline page on the FCC website at
http://www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/equal-employment-opportunity-2012-headlines.
For stations that have a website and five or more full-time employees:
We remind you that you must post your most recent EEO public file report on your website by the deadline
by which it must be placed in the public file, in accordance with 47 C.F.R. § 73.2080(c)(6). This will be
examined as part of the audit. Failure to post the required report on a station website is a violation of the
EEO Rule and subject to sanctions, including a forfeiture. Please also note that if your station or
employment unit does not have its own website, but its corporate site contains a link to a site pertaining to
the station or unit, then the station or unit’s most recent EEO public file report must be linked to either the
station or unit’s site or the general corporate site, pursuant to 47 C.F.R. § 73.2080(c)(6).

June 7, 2012

Dear Licensee:
1. In accordance with 47 C.F.R. § 73.2080(f)(4) of the Commission’s rules, the station employment unit (the
“Unit”) that includes your above-referenced station (the “Station”) has been randomly selected for an audit of
its Equal Employment Opportunity (“EEO”) program. A copy of Section 73.2080 of the Commission’s rules
is enclosed for your reference.
2. If the Unit is not required under our rules to have an EEO recruitment program due to the nature of its full-
time workforce (having fewer than five full-time employees, defined as employees regularly assigned to work
30 hours a week or more), you must still respond to this audit letter. However, in your response, you are
required only to provide a list of the Unit’s full-time employees, each noted by job title, the number of hours
each is regularly assigned to work per week, and a response to Question 3(e) below. Also, in formulating your
response, please see Questions 4(a)-(d) below regarding brokers and brokered stations for instructions for
situations in which the applicable employment unit has fewer than five full-time employees.
3.

Audit Data Requested.

If the Unit employs five or more full-time employees (and all units, for Question
3(e)), provide the following information in your response to this letter, including an explanation regarding any
requested information that you are unable to provide:
(a) Copies of the Unit’s two most recent EEO public file reports, described in Section 73.2080(c)(6).
For any stations in the Unit that have websites, provide each web address. If the Unit’s most recent EEO
public file report is not included on or linked to on each of these websites, indicate each station involved and
provide an explanation of why the report is not so posted or linked, as required by Section 73.2080(c)(6). In
accordance with Section 73.2080(c)(5)(vi), provide the date of each full-time hire listed in each report
provided. If the unit does not have its own website, but its corporate site contains a link to a site pertaining to
the unit, then the unit’s most recent EEO public file report must be linked to either the unit’s site or the general
corporate site, pursuant to 47 C.F.R. § 2080(c)(6).
(b) For each Unit full-time position filled during the period covered by the above EEO public file
reports, or since your acquisition of the Station, if after that period, dated copies of all advertisements,
bulletins, letters, faxes, e-mails, or other communications announcing the position, as described in Section
73.2080(c)(5)(iii). Include copies of all job announcements sent to any organization (identified separately
from other sources) that has notified the Unit that it wants to be notified of Unit job openings, as described in
Section 73.2080(c)(1)(ii).
2

(c) In accordance with Section 73.2080(c)(5)(v), the total number of interviewees for each vacancy
and the referral source for each interviewee for all full-time Unit vacancies filled during the period covered by
the above-noted EEO public file reports.
(d) Documentation of Unit recruitment initiatives described in Section 73.2080(c)(2) during the
periods covered by the above-noted EEO public file reports, such as participation at job fairs, mentoring
programs, and training for staff. Specify the Unit personnel involved in each such recruitment initiative.
Also, provide the total number of full-time employees of the Unit and state whether the population of the
market in which any station included in the Unit operates is 250,000 or more. Based upon these two factors,
determine and state whether the Unit is required to perform two or four initiatives within a two-year period,
pursuant to Sections 73.2080(c)(2) and (e)(3).
(e) Disclose any pending or resolved complaints involving the Station filed during the Station’s
current license term before any body having competent jurisdiction under federal, state, territorial or local law,
alleging unlawful discrimination in the employment practices of the Unit on the basis of race, color, religion,
national origin, or sex. For each such complaint, provide: (1) a brief description of the allegations and issues
involved; (2) the names of the complainant and other persons involved; (3) the date the complaint was filed;
(4) the court or agency before which it is pending or by which it was resolved; (5) the file or case number; and
(6) the disposition and date thereof or current status. Note that all complaints must be reported, regardless of
their status or disposition.
(f) In accordance with Section 73.2080(b), from the first day of the Station’s current license term (or
the date the licensee became the owner, if after that date) until the date of this letter, describe the
responsibilities of each level of Unit management responsible for implementing Unit EEO policies and
describe how the Unit has informed employees and job applicants of its EEO policies and program.
(g) In accordance with Section 73.2080(c)(3), from the first day of the Station’s current license term
(or the date the licensee became the owner, if after that date) until the date of this letter, describe the Unit’s
efforts to analyze its EEO recruitment program to ensure that it is effective and to address any problems found
as a result of such analysis.
(h) In accordance with Section 73.2080(c)(4), from the first day of the Station’s current license term
(or the date the licensee became the owner, if after that date) until the date of this letter, describe the Unit’s
efforts to analyze periodically its measures taken to examine pay, benefits, seniority practices, promotions, and
selection techniques and tests to ensure that they provide equal opportunity and do not have a discriminatory
effect. If the Unit has one or more union agreements, describe how the Unit cooperates with each union to
ensure EEO policies are followed for the Unit’s union-member employees and job applicants.
(i) If your entity is a religious broadcaster and any of its full-time employees are subject to a religious
qualification as described in Section 73.2080(a) of the rules, so indicate in your response to this letter and
provide data as applicable to the Unit’s EEO program. For example, for full-time hires subject to a religious
qualification, only a record of the hire listed by job title and date filled, the recruitment sources used for the
opening, and the source of the hiree must be provided. No other records are required for those hires. If five or
more full-time positions are not subject to a religious qualification, the licensee must maintain and provide all
records for such hires and complete the initiatives required under Section 73.2080(c)(2). Otherwise, a
religious broadcaster is not required to perform these initiatives.

4.

Time Brokerage.

(a)

Licensee of brokered station(s).

If the Unit employs fewer than five full-time employees and any
station included in it is subject to a time brokerage agreement, in addition to responding to this letter and
providing us a list of the Unit’s full-time employees listed by job title (and the number of hours each employee
is assigned to work) and a response to Question 3(e) above, you must immediately forward a copy of this letter
to the broker under each such agreement, which must respond to Question 4(b) below. If the Unit employs
five or more full-time employees, the licensee must respond fully to paragraph 3 above, and also forward the
letter to the broker so the broker may respond to Question 4(b) below.
(b)

Broker receiving audit letter from brokered station licensee.

If you are the broker of a station,
and the station you are brokering receives an audit letter, the licensee of the brokered station must forward the
audit letter to you. You should respond to the audit letter concerning EEO information relating only to your
own full-time employees at the brokered station. See Section 73.2080(f)(3).
(c)

Broker receiving audit letter directly from Commission.

If you are a broker, but the target
station in this audit letter is a station licensed to you, you must submit information requested herein for the
EEO program at your station (or employment unit). If you maintain EEO data for a station you are brokering
with that for your own station that is the target of this audit letter, and lack the ability to separate the
information, you must include in your response the information requested herein pertaining to your full-time
employees at the station(s) you broker. See Section 73.2080(f)(3).
(d)

Broker described under 4(b) or 4(c) above.

If your full-time employees at the station you are
brokering, combined with your full-time employees at your owned station(s), total fewer than five, however,
you need only respond to this letter by the deadline described below by submitting a list of your Unit’s full-
time employees (listed by job title and number of hours regularly assigned to work per week) and the same
type of list for the full-time employees you employ at the brokered station(s), and a response to Question 3(e)
above.
5.

Procedures.

Direct your response to EEO Staff, Policy Division, Media Bureau, Federal Communications
Commission, 445 12th Street, S.W., Washington, DC 20554. The response must be received by the
Commission by July 17, 2012. You need only submit your original response; no copies are needed. The
accuracy and completeness of the response must be certified by an officer, partner or other principal of the
Station licensee or broker (as appropriate) or, in the case of a noncommercial educational station, by an
officer, member or other principal of the licensee. (See Section 1.16.) The response may be in the form of a
CD or other electronic medium, as long as the certification provided refers to the material submitted and is on
paper with an original signature. To knowingly and willfully make any false statement or conceal any
material fact in response to this audit is punishable by fine or imprisonment (see 18 U.S.C. § 1001; see also 47
C.F.R. § 1.17), revocation of any station license or construction permit (47 U.S.C. § 312(a)(1)), and/or
forfeiture (47 U.S.C. § 503). Extensions of time must be requested in writing (or sent by e-mail to
lewis.pulley@fcc.gov) and will be granted only upon a showing of extraordinary circumstances. Unless and
until the EEO Staff grants such a request the original deadline remains in effect. Failure to respond to this
audit letter by the deadline is punishable by sanctions in accordance with Section 73.2080(g).
6. In accordance with Sections 73.3526(e)(10) (for commercial stations ) and 73.3527(e)(11) (for
noncommercial educational stations), copies of which are enclosed, you must place a copy of this letter and
your response in the public inspection file of each affected station. Consequently, your response should not
include personal information about individuals, such as social security numbers, home addresses, or other
4

personally identifiable information. We do not require that employment units retain such information in their
records, or that such information be provided in response to this letter.
7. If our EEO random audits sent in 2010, 2011, or 2012 included the Station, or if the Station’s most recent
license renewal application was granted, by final order, within the past 18 months, you may not have to
respond to this letter. If the Station falls within one of these categories, before responding, please tell us the
dates of public file reports included in an audit response or the date of the Station’s renewal, in an e-mail sent
to lewis.pulley@fcc.gov. We will then advise you if a response is necessary. Should you have any questions,
please contact the EEO Staff at (202) 418-1450. Thank you for your cooperation.
Sincerely,
Lewis C. Pulley
