Radio Ink: Bayliss To Host Online Auction

Here is a great "cause" for broadcasters (and a chance to pick up equipment at bargain prices).

PACIFIC GROVE, CA -- June 23, 2009: The Bayliss Foundation is looking at a new avenue to raise funds for its scholarship and internship programs, hosting its first online auction. The event will last several weeks, with hundreds of items of new and used radio and broadcast equipment on offer, including transmitters, remote and production equipment, and video and broadcast applications.

"Our top priority is to recruit and retain today's graduates and develop them into tomorrow's industry leaders," said foundation President Carl Butrum. "We believe this online auction and future ones will provide a new revenue stream for the Bayliss Foundation so we may continue its mission of guiding the next generation of broadcasters. Winning bids will provide critical funding for our students."

Applications for this year's Bayliss Radio Scholarships are now being reviewed, and the foundation's board will announce the 2009-2010 recipients next month. Since it was founded in 1985, Bayliss has awarded more than a million dollars in scholarship money to more than 330 college students nationwide and placed more than 90 students in paid internships with broadcasters.
