The latest RTDNA/Hofstra University Annual Survey finds that the percentage of minorities rose in both television and radio. The percentage of minority news directors in television hit its third highest level ever and is the highest ever at non-Hispanic stations. On the flip side, most of the gains were small, and the percentage of minorities in TV news remained at the low end of the narrow band within which the percentages have floated for the last decade.
There was no good news for women in radio and television news. Women in TV news and women TV news directors stayed largely the same -- each had a slight dip -- and women in radio news and women radio news directors both fell noticeably.
