Experience is an important factor influencing the compensation of Television Newscast Directors. Salaries for the relatively untried average out to around $28K, but survey participants with five to 10 years of experience earn a significantly higher median of $36K. The average pay reported by folks with 10 to 20 years of experience is around $43K. Individuals who report more than two decades of experience seem to make only slightly more than folks in the 10-to-20 year range; the more senior group sees median earnings in the comparatively modest ballpark of $47K.
