Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Television Newscast Directors, more experience generally translates to higher pay. Survey participants with less than five years' experience pocket $28K on average, but those with five to 10 years of experience enjoy a much bigger median of $35K. On average, Television Newscast Directors make $42K following one to two decades on the job. Television Newscast Directors with more than 20 years of experience report incomes that are only modestly higher; the median for these old hands hovers around $47K.
