The RTDNA's annual staffing and profitability study of radio and television newsrooms shows that radio's news content and staffing remained largely unchanged for 2009.
The survey, conducted with HOFSTRA UNIVERSITY, showed that the amount of news aired on radio stations remained about the same and that the "typical radio news staff remained at one person. If anything, radio news is even more centralized now than it has been, with the typical news director overseeing the news on three stations, and more than 80% of radio news directors saying they have additional station responsibilities beyond news."
