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. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience make $27K, but folks with five to 10 years under their belts enjoy an appreciably larger median of $36K. The average pay reported by folks with 10 to 20 years of experience is around $43K. Television Newscast Directors who have stuck around for more than two decades see earnings that are only slightly higher than those of folks who have worked for 10 to 20 years; the more senior group makes around $48K on average.
