Tom Ray and Brenda Amaral attended this career day.  There were 3 - :30 minute sessions.  Job descriptions such as announcing, production, programming, music, writing and sales were discussed in each session.  They set a table up with our banners and a radio broadcasting KLDR and did live breaks during each session, which the kids loved.  Tom allowed the kids to try their hand at announcing and ready commercials.  Tom and Brenda told them a little history of KAJO and KLDR as well as the value of these stations to the community.

 

Intern Program: We have an intern program with the Hidden Valley FBLA. The students get to come and shadow the employees of KAJO/KLDR the week of Oct. 6-10 and in exchange we get to use their services in helping to promote the station in the community or for extra help at any event we have. The kids earn time and learn the behind the scene actions of a business which is credit to their state competition for FBLA.

 

We also had one intern this year, Keith Fawcett from May 2012 to Present and a new applicant for internship from Kyle Dunlap in August of 2013.

 

Scholarship Program:  Establishment of the KAJO/KLDR Scholarship, a $1,000.00 scholarship, is awarded to a deserving senior graduate of New Hope Christian School. This student must be interested in pursuing a career in Broadcast Journalism.
