*Addendum for Position no. 4 No recruitment was done for this position due to the particular exigent circumstance faced by the station. Management identified a particular candidate for the position whose talents, abilities, and professional reputation are so unique that, in good faith, management found it reasonable to conclude that no comparable candidate could or would be identified through recruitment for the position. Hiring this particular person as Director of Corporate Sponsorship & Business Development was a one-time opportunity that, management reasonably concluded, would greatly benefit station operations.

**Addendum for Position no. 11 Although the sources in section B were utilized for the recruitment of these positions, the candidates referred by staff were the best candidates in each case.

2. Women in Journalism Mentoring Program Chicago Public Media Host / Reporter Melba Lara participated in an eight week mentoring program between June and August of 2010 in conjunction with the Chicago Chapter of the Association for Women Journalists, and the Goodman Theater. Chicago Public Media mentored a student who attends Mother McCauley High School in Chicago's Beverly neighborhood. This student worked with Melba in the newsroom to see firsthand how radio journalism works. The student did reporting assignments similar to what we would assign to our regular reporters. She attended the trial of former Governor Rod Blagojevich, reported on courtroom testimony, and interviewed radio personality Sarah Jindra for a profile on traffic in the city of Chicago and the technology to track it. She also interviewed host Jim DeRogatis from WBEZ's show "Sound Opinions" about the Chicago Culture scene, how it is changing, and how cultural affairs and concerts are staged. She is now a journalism student at a college in Minnesota.

3. Internship Program Chicago Public Media offers internships in various areas, from on-air production to non-profit management. Options for interns range from working on WBEZ's flagship news magazine program "Eight Forty-Eight", learning the art of fundraising by interning with our Institutional Advancement Department, learning how a radio show is put together with Vocalo.org, or working as a multimedia journalist as a web team intern. Chicago Public Media (CPM) realizes the important role an internship program plays in introducing new and diverse voices not only to its own broadcast communities in Chicago and Morris, Illinois, and Chesterton, Indiana, but to the broader landscape of public radio. Chicago Public Media offers internships at its main studio location in downtown Chicago. Internships are available four times a year. Interns have an opportunity to learn about various aspects of Chicago Public Media. They are also able to learn a variety of skills such as writing for newscasts, researching story ideas, digital audio editing, interviewing, working with sound, field reporting, producing feature segments, studio operation, or in other areas, such as the membership and marketing departments. As part of their learning experience, interns attend workshops and receive one-on-one mentoring in the above listed skills lead by senior staff members. George Lara, Internships and Mentorships Director, oversees the program, which also included the following CPM employees: Lynette Kalsnes ­ Reporter; Aurora Aguilar ­ Senior Producer; Sally Eisele ­ Managing Editor; Carrie Shepherd ­ Producer; Ammad Omar ­ Newscast Editor; Cate Cahan - Metro Desk Editor; Brian Johnson ­ Vocalo.org Host/Producer; Shantell Jamison ­ Vocalo.org Host/Producer; Melissa Wall - Director Capital Campaign and Becky Vlamis - Producer. During the Summer of 2010, Chicago Public Media partnered with the Kemper Foundation to provide leadership experience for a college student, directly under our Managing Editor, Sally Eisele. The Segal Family Foundation funded a stipend (Spring 2011) to be awarded to an intern from an underrepresented community, who otherwise couldn't afford an unpaid internship. The recipient of the stipend interned with Vocalo.org (WBEW). The Internship Program is open to college students, recent graduates, non-traditional students, and members of the community. Members of minority groups are encouraged to apply on the Chicago Public Media website. Most internships are for a minimum of 15 hours per week, with the exception of the "Eight Forty-Eight" and Newscast internships, each of which requires a 35 hour a week commitment. In the June 1, 2010 through May 31, 2011 reporting period, Chicago Public Media hosted a total of 28 interns in various departments of the station and Vocalo.org (WBEW). A list of available internships, along with an application form, is available year-round on www.chicagopublicmedia.org, our website. 4. EEO Training Workshop for Management and Staff On 5/17/2011 Chicago Public Media hired outside counsel from Foley and Lardner, LLP, to provide two 60 minute workshops: one with a target audience of managers and supervisors, and the other for staff. Employees received information on federal guidelines for Equal Employment Opportunity, Americans with Disabilities Act, and company policy for providing a workplace which is free of harassment. 5. Staff Training: Professional Growth and Development In spring of 2011, Diana Zapata, Director of Human Resources, conducted a twenty-five hour course focusing on Management Leadership; Professional Growth and Development. The course included academic style lectures, two required reading texts, follow-up assignments, small group meetings, content and process review, as well as one-on-one leadership coaching. Eight participants from various departments were selected for this prototype training, which will serve as a foundation for future management training for other staff.

6. 2011 Pritzker Fellowship Program Objectives The Pritzker Fellowships are designed to fulfill our most important goal: to discover, encourage, and train the best possible representatives of a diverse new generation of public-media talent. As our community evolves, we must continue to cultivate media professionals who contribute to programs which speak with many voices. While ongoing changes in our listeners' needs require thoughtful, engaging and entertaining programs, they also call for a strong commitment to diversity within our organization. As Chicago continues to grow and change, it is our duty to reflect its composition in the staff we create and the programming we offer. Program Summary Two Pritzker Fellowships are awarded each year to people from diverse communities who are non-radio professionals, have not received formal training in journalism and who show promise as radio producers, journalists and story tellers. The Pritzker Fellowships offer high level mentorship and professional development focused on journalism. Pritzker Fellows will be given rigorous training in every aspect of public radio journalism and will work alongside some of the nation's most respected reporters, producers and editors. Instruction includes: · · · · Production and editorial skills Reporting and on-air training Writing for the air and the web Multi-media production skills

Professional training is provided at the WBEZ Studios over a period of nine months, with full 40-hour work weeks required. The program begins in July and concludes in March. Fellows are expected to make the program their primary focus during the term of the Fellowships. Each Pritzker Fellow is awarded a stipend of $20,000 plus full benefits. The stipend opens the door to applicants who otherwise would not be in a position to consider participation in an extended training program. Selection Process for the 2010 Pritzker Fellowships Our ideal applicant is someone who has a history of being engaged in their community: someone who has talent, passion and who demonstrates a desire to create change through telling stories. Our prerequisite of being nominated by a community-based organization enables us to expand our reach effectively and find hidden talent. Given that the community organizations work on the front lines within their communities, we anticipate that they have access to exactly the type of people we hope to attract. Another benefit to involving community organizations in our search for the Fellows allows us to develop strong ties with community leaders. Not only does this create new partnerships in traditionally underserved communities, but also furthers our objective of continuing to grow and change in ways that mirror the diverse population of the Chicago area. Shona Koester, Project Manager, created a list of over 98 organizations and contacted each one with information about the Fellowships. We asked that they forward the information to co-workers and colleagues. Each applicant was asked to provide written answers to several questions, as well as to provide an example of their storytelling ability. We left it up to each individual to determine what form of media they would use to share their story, in addition to what the subject matter would be. Our goal was to offer the candidates a forum to highlight their unique talents. The responses truly exceeded our expectations. Sixty-two applications were submitted. The quality of the candidates was stunning. Our program attracted people of all ages and of all walks of life whose talent and drive astounded us. Of those sixty-two, twenty-six made it to the second round and had their applications reviewed by our selection panel. The panel was made up of four judges. Three of the judges were media professionals from outside of WBEZ and one staff member Host, Richard Steele. Using a scoring rubric, each judge reviewed and scored the second round applications. Based on those scores, the top six applicants moved into the final round and were interviewed by the panel.

2011 Pritzker Fellowships Outcome We offered the Fellowships to two outstanding candidates. The Pritzker Fellows will receive guidance from Reporter Lynette Kalsnes: oversight from George Lara, Director of Internships and Mentorships, Diana Zapata, Human Resources Director and Dorse Kelly, Human Resources Manager. Process Summary · · · · · · · · · · · · We contacted over 98 community organizations about the Fellowships. 43 of the nominations came from organizations with which we had no direct contact. The online application form received 253 unique views. 62 people applied for the Fellowships. 37 of the nominations came in on the last day of the application period. 66 organizations nominated a candidate for the Fellowships (several applicants had multiple nominators). The applicants were extremely diverse. They ranged from people just out of high school to people who had been in the workforce for the past twenty years, from having no experience in the workplace to having run their own business, from having a law degree to not graduating from High School. Each of the judges volunteered an average of 18 hours of their time to choosing the Fellows. 26 applicants made it to the second round and were reviewed by the judging panel. Six of the applicants made it to the final round and were interviewed by the judges. Two of the judges have contacted two of the non-winning finalists and offered to help them along in their journalistic pursuits. Several of the applicants stated that applying for the Fellowships made them realize the importance of their dream of becoming a journalist is and have vowed to pursue other avenues in order to fulfill their goals.
