While designed to provide volunteers for the station’s pool of deejays, these trainings have led to employment in radio broadcasting for some participants over the years.

In 2023/2024, KXCI trained 5 incoming volunteers to be community DJs to attend events, serve as an ambassador for KXCI, and operate mobile DJ equipment at events with partner organizations. During this time period KXCI taught 3 (three) hands-on adult broadcasting courses to 17 participants.

KXCI Equal Opportunity Employment Narrative Statement
As a community radio licensee, KXCI-FM and the Foundation for Creative Broadcasting, embrace the responsibilities inherent in the Broadcast Equal Employment Opportunity Program. As stated in our board-approved Employee Handbook (updated in 2017), we are “an Equal Employment Opportunity employer. It is against policy for any employee to discriminate against an applicant for employment or another employee on the basis of race, color, religious creed, sex (including pregnancy), age, marital status, sexual orientation, national origin, or any other classification protected by applicable discrimination laws. Furthermore, no employees of FCB are to discriminate against any applicant or fellow employee on the basis of a disability or status as a disabled veteran or veteran of the Vietnam era. FCB will make reasonable accommodations, including modification of policies and procedures, in appropriate cases for qualified individuals with disabilities, if it can do so without undue hardship.” KXCI makes its best attempt to advertise all full-time vacancies locally, statewide, and nationally through announcements that appear in newspapers and on applicable industry websites. Full-time vacancies are also posted on our website and announced on-air so our volunteers will have the opportunity to explore paid careers in broadcasting.
