Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Television Newscast Directors generally obtain higher compensation for more plentiful past experience. 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. People with 10 to 20 years of experience make an average of about $42K in this role. Veterans who have surpassed the 20-year mark may make only slightly more than those who are navigating the mid-career stage; the more senior group reports median earnings of around $48K.
