July 2, 2013 at 4:28 AM (PT)
Another bit of this year's RTDNA/HOFSTRA UNIVERSITY Annual Survey of U.S. broadcast newsrooms has been released, and it shows that radio news salaries rose 0.8% in 2012, behind the rate of inflation and leaving the salaries down 1.3% in terms of real wages. Salaries rose substantially in major markets but fell in other markets.
Over the past five and ten years, reporter salaries have outpaced inflation, but news director salaries have lagged. Starting salaries in radio and television have remained flat from last year.
