KBS to Hire First Disabled Anchor in S.Korea

2011/06/17 | 366 views | Permalink | Source

The Korean Broadcasting System (KBS) is now hiring a disabled person as a news anchor for the first time in the history of Korean broadcasting.

Based on Article 2 of the Welfare of Disabled Persons Act, all people registered as disabled may apply regardless of gender, age and academic background. Applications will be accepted on the KBS Web site from June 20th to 27th.

The news anchor will go through document screening, interviews, and camera tests, followed by three months of training. The successful applicant will begin anchoring the news sometime this fall.

KBS announced its plans to hire a disabled anchor in April, saying it would better carry out its duties as a public broadcaster and to correct prejudice in society towards the disabled.
