The latest edition of the RTDNA/HOFSTRA UNIVERSITY annual survey of TV and radio news salaries saw a 9.8& overall increase in radio news salaries in 2010, inflated by "more high-paying, all-news stations reporting this year than we usually see," according to RTDNA's BOB PAPPER. TV news salaries were up 7.3%. The increases contrasted with 2008's 4.4% drop and 2009's 2.5% increase.
Radio News Director salaries ranged from $12,000 to $250,000, averaging $43,400. Reporters earned from $18,000 to $75,000, averaging $35,000, while anchors ranged from $25,000 to $100,000, averaging $42,500.
