Equal Opportunity Employer
It is the policy of WOSU Public Media to provide equal employment opportunity to all qualified persons, and no person shall be discriminated against in employment because of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, disability, military status, citizenship, or any other legally protected status in accordance with applicable local, state, and federal law. We shall establish, maintain, and carry out a positive continuing program of specific practices designed to ensure equal opportunity and nondiscrimination in every aspect of station employment policy and practice. FCC Form 396 Exhibit 3 – Narrative Statement
The FCC requires WOSU to retain records to document that the station has satisfied these requirements. WOSU Public Media does this in the form of an annual EEO report, created on June 1st of each year. The report includes a listing of all vacancies, the recruitment sources used to fill the vacancies, the number of candidates interviewed and other related information.
The FCC requires that these reports, which may be maintained in an electronic format, shall be placed in the stations’ public file and retained until after grant of the renewal application for the license term during which the vacancy was filled. WOSU most recently filed for license renewal in 2021 and will do so again beginning in 2028.2022-2023 EEO Public File Report (PDF)
