Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience is important when determining pay for Newspaper Editors. After five to 10 years, pay—which begins at $31K—can reach $35K. After spending one to two decades on the job, pay usually hovers around $47K. A 20-year tenure heralds decreased salary growth, and Newspaper Editors who have made it this far report earning around $51K per year. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 20 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than five, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 26 percent. Age distribution in this workforce is concentrated between one and nine years of experience; more than half of respondents fall in this range.
