Media Workers Low Salaries

Ed Cone links to Lex Alexander’s post (Greensboro N&R) about the annual media salary survey and writes, “Newspapers are often cash machines, but the big money goes to the owners, not the reporters.”

From Lex Alexander:

Median salaries ranked as follows:
Online publishing: $32,000
Cable TV: $30,000
Consumer magazines: $27,000
Daily newspapers: $26,000
Weekly newspapers: $24,000
TV: $23,492
Radio: $23,000

You combine those print salary figures — “median,” remember, means half of those surveyed make more and half make even less…
