Updated to include March 10, 2003 Changes In Regulations

 

General Policy

 

WVHI Radio affords equal employment opportunity in all personnel actions without

regard to race, color, religion, national origin or gender. As a religious broadcaster WVHI has

established religious belief as a job qualification for all of their station employees as permitted by the

Federal Communications Commission. WVHI has adopted this EEO Program that is

designed to assure wide dissemination of information about each full-time job opening throughout the

entire community.

for the implementation of the station’s EEO Program.

of manners including, but not limited to:

must read and testify with signed acknowledgement. Manual contains
