Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
People who have worked for fewer than five years bring home $42K on average. Median compensation in the five-to-10 year group, however, is higher at approximately $50K. On average, Journalists in New York make $73K following one to two decades on the job. Survey participants with more than twenty years of experience only make around $49K on average, though; this group reports a lower median than the one claimed by mid-career individuals.
