2015 TV news salaries and pay scale: Reporters, producers, social media, multimedia

RTDNA released their annual Salary Survey of newsrooms from across the country in collaboration with Hofstra University. Compensation is one of the most asked about topics from broadcast journalism students. It’s also one of the hardest for students to get answered because not many professionals are willing to disclose their pay. Thanks to RTDNA and Hofstra for putting together the graphic below. You can get more in-depth information of their findings by going to their website. I wanted to provide a snapshot for students and recent graduates that are evaluating whether or not they want to pursue the career.
