Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Television Newscast Directors, experience and pay levels seem to be correlated; more years in the business generally lead to more money. Workers in their first five years can expect to earn $28K, but people who have been around for five to 10 years earn a noticeably bigger sum of $34K. Television Newscast Directors who work for 10 to 20 years in their occupation tend to earn about $42K. Folks who have racked up more than 20 years in the field report incomes that aren't that much higher than less experienced individuals' earnings; the veterans make just $47K on average.
