WBXQ(FM), WBRX(FM), WRTA(AM), WKMC(AM)

There were several station tours conducted throughout the year. Each group

was led through the building by a station employee who told the group

about each department and what positions existed, and what kind of training

is needed for each position. The groups got to see the business departments, talk with several department heads, as well as the inner workings of an on-air position. Those touring the station also have the opportunity to ask our on-air personalities and the executives questions about broadcasting, communication and a radio career choice.

Groups who toured the station included:

Altoona Area High School Jazz Band

The Sales Executives participated in ongoing training during Monday and Thursday morning meetings.  These meetings were conducted by Wendy Lynch, Sales Manager and Scott Barger, General Manager.  Material covered in training was from information distributed by Nielsen, Radio Ink, RAB.com.
