KUOW, KPLU Join NPR And CBI To Train Next Generation Of Multimedia Journalists

brown_cbiLogo_spot_emerald-header-newLogo

KUOW, KPLU, NPR and College Broadcasters, Inc. are seeking student applicants to their first Student Multimedia Project. The week-long opportunity for college and graduate students to learn from professional journalists will be hosted at the CBI National Student Electronic Media Conference in Seattle, Oct. 20-25, 2014. The application deadline is midnight Pacific Daylight Time Monday, Sept. 22, 2014.

A committee of journalists will select up to six students to pair one-to-one with public media journalists and college multimedia instructors from around the country. Three students will be selected from the Seattle/Tacoma area.

“At KUOW we are excited about this project because including more voices and a greater breadth of storytelling in public media ensures our resonance and relevance with audiences into the future,” said KUOW General Manager Caryn Mathes, “I applaud this project that seeds our craft with the next generation.”

The Student Multimedia Project will emphasize multimedia storytelling focused on character development. Students who are selected for the project will each find a person to focus on for their story—someone doing something interesting who is willing and available to be interviewed. Students will produce a radio story about the person and then tell their story differently for the web.

“NPR and its member stations support the Project because it allows us to discover and groom a diverse pool of young talent,” said NPR Consultant and Project Manager Doug Mitchell. “The Project gives public media professionals a chance to see if students have what it takes to do the work and lets our industry build a pipeline of new professionals who understand our way of storytelling.” Mitchell thanked KUOW as well as NPR member stations KPLU Seattle/Tacoma, Michigan Public Radio and Milwaukee Public Radio for dedicating staff as mentors in this project.

Mentors for the project are Amara Aguilar of the University of Southern California Annenberg School of Journalism; LaToya Dennis of Milwaukee Public Radio; Sarah Hulett of Michigan Radio; Kyle Stokes of KPLU Seattle-Tacoma and Traci Tong of “The World” from PRI, BBC and WGBH Boston.

This is the sixth student media collaboration of Next Generation Radio and CBI/College Media. Previous projects were at conferences in Dallas, Nashville, St. Louis and Kansas City.

The mission of KUOW is to create and serve an informed public, one challenged and invigorated by an understanding and appreciation of events, ideas and cultures.

Board Blog: Special Pre-Convention Sessions and the Second LPFM Window

Will Robedee, CBI Executive Director

Right about now is the best time to book your airfare for the convention. Just yesterday I had someone tell me airfares from his city to Seattle dropped more than $100. If you have not booked your flight yet, give some serious consideration to booking a Tuesday arrival (or early Wednesday) so you can register for the special pre-convention sessions offered this year.

If either topic is of interest to you, the extra time away will be well spent because you simply cannot pay $50 to attend sessions like these anywhere.

FCC 101 – Spend three hours with an experienced adviser and a well-known lawyer who represents non-commercial and commercial stations before the FCC on a regular basis. This special session will cover all of the basics of keeping your station legal.

Adobe Creative Quickstart – Prices for a day’s training generally start at about $500. For $50, you can experience a very small classroom-size experience for a three hour training session. With the small classroom setting, you will get personalized attention from a certified instructor who is one of the most popular speakers at the convention.

For more information about these special sessions, visit http://askcbi.org/seattle/sessions-and-speakers/pre-conference-workshops-wed-oct-22/. If you plan to enroll, but have not made your hotel reservations yet, please contact us at http://www.askcbi.org/?page_id=1903.

LPFM Round II

The FCC opened the most recent window for LPFM applications in 2013, with a deadline to file in November of 2013. They received over 2800 applications from across the nation and, as you can imagine, there were a lot of applications where two or more were in conflict with each other. These are referred to as mutually exclusive applications (MX). The initial list of MX applicants included 406 groups.

Stations which were not MX were called singletons and were generally granted a construction permit, unless there was an objection filed with the FCC.

In order to resolve the large number of MX applications, the FCC provided a limited window for minor changes to applications in order solve their conflicts through various types of amendments (including proposed time shares) in mid-December.

Due to the large number of issues which arose concerning various applications, it was not until July 9, 2014 that the FCC took the first, in what appears to be three actions to help to resolve the remaining MX groups. At this time, the announced “tentative selectees” for LPFM frequencies were in AK, AZ, CA, CO, HI, KS (including Kansas City, MO), NE, NV, OR, UT and WA. Tentative selectees were chosen based on a point system. Applicants garnered points for various issues, such as established community presence, promising to have a local studio, promising to originate eight hours of local programming daily, etc.

Those with the most points were identified as a tentative selectee; however, a large percentage of the groups were tied with multiple applicants having the same number of points. The FCC rules anticipated this situation. Applicants who were still MX at this point could make major changes to their applications and or take other legal actions to help them prevail.

A fair percentage of the MX groups in this round have been settled, but many still remain unresolved. If you are in this situation, you need to find a resolution quickly as the deadline to come to a resolution is 10/7/2014. If you do not come to a resolution before then, you will likely be submitted to a forced time share which is non-renewable.

Round II

The FCC “released” Round II on Friday, Sept. 5, 2014 stating that it would start accepting major amendments on Monday, Sept. 8, 2014, but it appears that is not what transpired. The monitoring we have in place for FCC applications did not show any amended applications on this first day, which is a surprise because the first day to file major amendments is normally flooded with applicants filing since, if applicant X files for a major amendment on the first day, and applicant Y files a conflicting amendment on day 2, applicant X prevails. It appears the reason this occurred is that the FCC did not make the announcement public until Monday September 8, 2014, although they were required to provide a day between the public notice and the opening of the window. Tuesday the 8th did indeed show a large number of proposed amendments.

So, what are the initial results of Round II, which included applicants in CT, DC, DE, IL, IN, KY, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, NC, NH, NJ, NY, OH, PA, RI, SC, TN, VA, VT, WI and WV?

A quick survey of the tentative selectees shows the following stations, which might be considered student operations, as singletons:

Benedictine University, Livingstone College, Westside High School and New Buffalo Area Schools.

Good news!? Yes, and maybe no. This means that there is no one else who has filed an application which conflicts with theirs. On the other hand, any party has 30 days to file either a petition to deny, or an informal objection to the application, which could result in delays or worse. Once the 30 day window closes, these stations should be on solid ground to begin construction of their new station.

A non-comprehensive review of MX groups in Round II shows the following stations, which might be consider student operations that are tied with one or more tentative selectees:

One of two tentative selectees:

Manchester Community College                      Sanford School
Greater Clark County Schools                          Kentucky State University
Massasoit Community College                         Regional School Unit Rsu 21
Roosevelt High School                                       Manlius Pebble Hill School, Inc.
North Penn School District

One of three tentative selectees:

Morton College                                                     Lasell College Radio
St. Louis Language Immersion School            Northern Nash High School
Visible Music College

One of Five selectees:

Johns Hopkins University

One of six selectees:

Philadelphia Student Union                                Brown Student Radio

One of seven selectees:

Chelsea Public Schools is one of seven tentative selectees and is in the same group as Boston Public Schools.

The following were not top point getters:

Loyola University Maryland                                          Marshall University Graduate College
Atlantic Cape Community College                               Kutztown University                                                             Rectors & Visitors of The University of VA                Whitefish Bay School District Board

What are the options for those who are not singletons or those who were not top point getters?

Those who were not top point getters are not necessarily out of options. They can still file a major amendment to move their proposed transmitter location, use another frequency (if one is still available with no current applications), or find fault with another MX application and hope to reduce their points or have their application dismissed. One point to look for is to see if the other applicant(s) have actually secured their transmitter site. Any major amendment application should be submitted ASAP, because the FCC will accept such applications on a first come-first served basis, regardless of the number of points.

Tied with others? You have the options listed above, plus you have more. You could propose a time share with another top point getter in your MX group to aggregate more points than others. If your date of established community presence is the oldest or at least among the top three in your group of top point stations, you may have some advantage if there are alternate frequencies available. Why?

When an MX group has more than three tied applicants with the same number of points, the three applicants with the longest established community presence per your initial application will be considered for a non-voluntary time share with a non-renewable license, which is a very bad situation for all involved. This will force all stations to look at all alternatives, unless they want to time share, which may not be that bad in all situations. A voluntary time share is renewable. A forced time share is not.

I will not visit all of the possible scenarios and highly suggest that if you want the LPFM frequency you applied for and are in an MX, you retain a highly qualified engineer and lawyer to work through your particular situation and offer you the best strategy going forward. I believe I know a lot about this subject as an employee at a school with an LPFM application, but even so, I have hired both an engineer and a lawyer to make sure I do it right and that, if my employer/students do not end up with an LPFM frequency, it will not be because I did it without expert consultation.

For more information, see the FCC release at http://www.fcc.gov/document/fcc-names-tentative-selectees-mutually-exclusive-lpfm-applications-0 or contact me for informal thoughts about your situation.

Spotlight: DePauw University’s WGRE

blogheader-spotlight

Thanks to Station Manager Caitlin Hutchinson for answering the questions!

Tell me a little history about your station and where your station is now?
WGRE1952WGRE first began broadcasting in 1941 and was established as the first 10-watt FM college radio station in the country in 1949. Today WGRE is the largest student organization at DePauw University with over 200 DJs and is run by a student staff of 15 directors. In recent years, we have been recognized with awards from MTVu, The Indiana Associated Press, the Indiana Broadcasters Association and the Society of Professional Journalists. WGRE has also been consistently ranked among the top 10 college radio stations by the Princeton Review.

What sets your station apart from other college radio stations?
Our station is run on a 24-hour basis by students. We choose to run as a live, local, full-service station in our community. There isn’t a time of the day during the school year when you will tune in to WGRE and hear dead-air or an automated playlist. It takes a lot of extra work, but it allows us to let as many students as possible participate.

Why did you choose to work at the radio station?
wgre1I first got involved with the station through a journalism class that I took my Sophomore year. I expected to just help out for a semester and move on to the next adventure, but I ended up finding a place that I absolutely loved. I applied for a position as a director the following semester and have been on staff since.

What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done for your station?
Like I said, WGRE is a 24-hour station. Part of the job of the directors is to be “on duty” one night each week. So if someone doesn’t come to their show the director on duty has to go in and cover it. So the craziest thing I’ve ever done was cover from 4 a.m. to 8 a.m. on a Tuesday morning and then go straight to classes. It took some time and a LOT of coffee to recover from that one.

What’s the best part of college radio? And the hardest part?
wgre2The best part would have to be the relationships that you can build through radio. Whether that’s with your audience, fellow DJs or other directors, everyone always seems to want to know more and is so excited to talk about the station. The worst part is probably balancing everything from covering shifts to your own show to classes to meetings; it can be a lot to handle at times, but definitely worth it in the end.

Board Blog: Early Bird Gets the Worm—and Special Rates!

blogheader-boardcolumn1

lmarshall

Lisa Marshall, CBI Treasurer

As we welcome the new academic year, many schools are solidifying plans to attend the National Student Electronic Media Convention in Seattle. Here are a few pointers to help you and your school financially prepare for registration:

1. Register Early

CBI Member Media Outlet Students, Advisers, and Managers are able to register for $100 through Oct. 1. If you’re not part of a CBI Member Media Outlet, you can register for $160.00 through Oct. 1. Non-academic related attendees also have a special early bird rate of $200.

2. Register Everyone Attending

Any individual attending NSEMC must be a paid registrant—including students, advisers, speakers, and presenters. The CBI Board of Directors also pays to attend the best convention of the year! If your funds aren’t available until after Oct 1., we still offer regular registration rates starting at $130 through the convention date.

3. Paying by Check? Mail it Early.

CBI snail mail is directed to our P.O. Box in Penn. Mail is forwarded to me monthly, so plan for a 3-4 week process time for your check. Mailing your convention check sooner than later will ease your worry. We process payments based on postmark date, so hang tight if your check sent before Oct. 1 isn’t processed until closer to the convention. If paying by check, please user our Wild Apricot membership site to process your registration. Kindly mail a copy of the Wild Apricot registration with your check.

4. Same-Day Credit Card Processing

Registering by credit card is the quickest method to process payments. Please use our Wild Apricot membership site to process your request via PayPal. Our PayPal portal accepts credit card payments without PayPal registered accounts—so no need to worry about paying through a personal PayPal account.

5. Registering Multiple Attendees from your Media Outlet

Media Outlets registering multiple attendees should register each individual separately or add additional individuals as guests to the main registrant (i.e. the media outlet adviser). Use the button at the bottom left of the registration page to add additional attendee information.

6. Someone Registered Can’t Attend?

NSEMC registrations are non-refundable, but you can request a transfer to another individual attending within the same registration level. For example, if a registered CBI Member Student cannot attend, you can replace the student’s registration with a new student at your media outlet. A follow-up email will be issued to the adviser to confirm the request.

7. Have More Questions?

Email us using this form. We will respond as soon as possible!

Visit our Registration Page to register for CBI Seattle. Hope to see you at #NSEMC!

How important is college radio to today’s underground bands?

Local station WPRK at Rollins College continues broadcasting, as it has since 1952. On air every Wednesday at 5 p.m. is “Local Heroes,” which has been on air since the ’90s, when alternative rock dominated freeform shows. Currently hosted by George Wallace, Ilene Lieber and Daniel Pacchioni, the show’s intent is to highlight Orlando community figures doing interesting things in our city.

Mesquite schools’ KEOM-FM radio is a power in wattage and education

Hits from the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s aren’t much of a draw for the typical high school student. But the advanced broadcast journalism program’s true format might be considered a blend of dual credit, advanced placement and career technology. MISD has been providing that opportunity since Sept. 4, 1984 — long before educators adopted such terms.
