Wages in community radio are one of the medium’s great questions. Stations are sometimes unsure what to offer. Prospective staff is also uncertain about what to ask for related to pay. Finally, current staff may wonder about what their peers are paid, and what they can expect in the future.
While it is a privilege to work for community media, pay and benefits raise important questions. These issues include diversity, fairness, and standing by the values listeners expect.
NFCB has just launched a community radio wage and salary survey. Our goal is to help stations, their staff and prospective workers in our industry gain an understanding of what to expect during their time in community media. Complete a brief survey about you or your station here. Responses are anonymous.
