You’re Sort of Making More Money! Poll Shows Slight Rise in TV Pay

By Kevin Eck 

The latest poll by the RTDNA and Hofstra University shows TV salaries rose 1.9 percent in 2014.

The pollsters saw the half full glass (or wallet) despite writing, “That’s up by 0.3 from a year ago, and with inflation an extremely low 1.6%, that means that TV news salaries gained slightly in purchasing power last year. The spread of 0.3 this year at least beats the 0.1 difference a year ago.”

Over a five year period, the survey shows the biggest salary gains for news reporters with a 23.3 percent rise from 2010 to 2015 and assignment editors who saw their pay increase by 23.1 percent over the five year span.

The biggest loser? Web/mobile writer/producers lost 6.7 percent in pay when compared to internet specialists in 2010.
