ALTERNATIVE

BROADCAST INSPECTION PROGRAM (ABIP)

One of the most valuable member services offered by SCBA is the Alternative Broadcast Inspection Program (ABIP).  Participation in the program protects your station from random FCC inspection for a period of three years.  More importantly, it is a method to be certain your station is in compliance with all FCC regulations including all technical requirements and public file requirements.  (Inspection excludes examination of EEO and political files.)  If you do not currently hold an ABIP certificate, call SCBA today to schedule your inspection.  If you do hold an ABIP certificate, be sure you check the expiration date and schedule your renewal inspection well in advance so you have no interruption in your protection. Information about how to enroll in the ABIP program is at http://www.scba.net/abip.htm Please call SCBA if you have any questions.

 

 

SCBA 15th

ANNUAL JOB FAIR

On Wednesday, April 8th, SCBA held its 15th annual Collegiate Job Fair at the SC National Guard Armory in Columbia. The Job Fair is designed to assist stations with their outreach efforts while also providing them with the unique opportunity to meet and even interview students enrolled in broadcast programs at state colleges and universities. The 2015 Job Fair had more than 150 students walk through the doors, many of whom are due to graduate in May 2015. Students had the opportunity to meet and introduce themselves to over 100 stations represented.

Tips for Non-Profit Organizations

For local radio and television stations across South Carolina, community service is more than a passing concern.  It is a way of doing business.  Every day in South Carolina, from the biggest cities to the smallest towns and everywhere in between, broadcasters are going to bat for community charities, educating residents about important local issues, and delivering lifesaving information and relief in times of crisis or disaster.  Non-profit groups across the state know they can turn to their local radio and television stations for a helping hand.  The tradition of community service by South Carolina broadcasters is unmatched by any other industry and one that we pledge to uphold in the years ahead.  If you want to gain exposure for your charitable organization, school or other civic group, SCBA provides these guidelines for working with the media.
