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 $27K on average, but those with five to 10 years of experience enjoy a much bigger median of $33K. After working for 10 to 20 years, Television Newscast Directors make a median salary of $41K. More than 20 years of experience mean a somewhat bigger median paycheck of $48K, but it's not much more than what less experienced people make.
