BroadSouth Communications, Inc. maintains a pro-active approach towards the spirit of expanding job opportunities in the field of broadcasting. James M. Reynolds, President of BroadSouth Communications, Inc. licensee of stations WDXX and WHBB, is directly and personally involved in the company's "Outreach" effort.

WorkForce Development

From January 1999 to present, BSCI President James M. Reynolds serves on the Governor's State Workforce Investment Board which funds and directs public agencies specializing in job training and career advancement. From 2009 to 2011, Reynolds served as State Board Chairman. In this voluntary role, Reynolds is directly involved in the effort to garner statewide publicity on both radio and television for the Alabama Career Center System. The mission is to promote the "One Stop" concept for job seekers whereby they could receive skills assessment, career counseling and be directed to skills training opportunities with one visit to the Career Center office.
In 2012, Reynolds was appointed Chairman of the State WorkForce System Review Committee charged with the task of evaluating the existing system and making recommendations to the Governor regarding potential improvements. In this role, Reynolds works closely with representatives from the U.S. Department of Labor, Administrators from the State WorkForce Development Division of the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs, Administrators from nine employment related state agencies and a number of Alabama's largest private sector employers. In 2013, Reynolds served on the United States Department of Labor Evaluation Committee for the State of Alabama. In this role, he was interviewed by USDOL officials to determine the effectiveness of the implementation of WorkForce funding and subsequent programs in Alabama.

Station Ambassador Program

February through March of 2014, WDXX and WHBB conducted their annual search to fill fourteen part-time positions to serve as station ambassadors for promotional events for a one year period. On air announcements and letters to area high school administrators were used to notify the community of the solicitation effort. Area high school females are solicited to work promotional events, live broadcast remotes and be given the opportunity to learn about the broadcast industry. The candidates are chosen based on having at least a "B" academic grade point average, having a good personality and a desire to learn broadcasting.
All successful candidates are paid minimum wage for the hours that they work. In 2014, there were 22 applicants of which 10 were chosen. The successful candidates were chosen based upon academic achievement, attitude, ambition and interest in broadcasting without regard to race, religion, color, creed or national origin. Community Relations Director Carolyn S. Rowell is responsible for implementation and supervision of this program.

High School Player of the Game

From August through November 2014, WDXX honored a football player of the game from among high schools in the WDXX coverage area. Each week, following the Friday night high school game which was broadcast on WDXX, the most outstanding player, based on game impact and performance, was chosen by the broadcast crew.
The following week, no less than 20 on air announcements were aired to congratulate the weekly winner and give promotion to his school. In addition, a plaque was given to each "Player of the Game". By promoting this program, station officials believe that positive relationships will be developed with the schools and the individual players which will ultimately result in a greater interest in the broadcast industry.
