CONCURRING STATEMENT OF COMMISSIONER BENJAMIN L. HOOKS
In Re: KFSN-TV
I concur with the Commission's determination.
However, I would like to take this opportunity to comment briefly on Com-
mission procedures in determining acceptable statistical data for the "zone of
reasonableness." As the Commission stated at para. 5 supra:
"* * * It appears that Capital Cities' overall employment of women is
within a zone of reasonableness . . . However, we are concerned with
KFSN's employment of women in the upper-four job categories.
Although I realize the "zone" is a "floating zone," to wit, is dynamic and
not static, I am hopeful that this Commission will in some way further define
the processing standard whereby we determine what constitutes being within
the zone, both in overall employment as well as in the upper-four categories.
Such a standard must set forth clearly for licensees, the public and the
Commission exactly what is expected. I am hopeful that this will be addressed
in Docket No. 20550--the EEO Rulemaking proceeding-to be taken up in the
I am certain that a definite standard, together with the proposed job title analy-
sis information, will greatly assist the Commission in making determination
on what constitutes being within or without the zone in a particular geo-
graphical locale and licensee's workforce.
As stated in our rules, each station filing a program shall:
Conduct continuing review of job structure and adopt positive recruit-
ment, training, job design, and other measures needed in order to insure
genuine equality of opportunity to participate fully in all organizational
units, occupations, and levels of responsibility in the station. 47 CFR
73.125(b) (5), 73.301(b) (5), 73.680(b) (5).
Therefore, I can think of no better way to assist licensees in determining
when they are not satisfactorily performing in employing women or minorities
in "all organizational units, occupations and levels of responsibility" than by
setting forth a standard for determining their being in a "zone of reasonable-
ness"-especially in the upper four job categories.
