Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
In general, experience and pay appear to be strongly linked; those with more experience usually bring in higher incomes. Folks with fewer than five years of experience take home $28K on average, and those who have worked for five to 10 years see a bigger median salary of $34K. Television Newscast Directors with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $42K. Television Newscast Directors who surpass 20 years on the job report pay that isn't as high as one would expect; the median compensation for this crowd sits around $48K.
