The 20 top earners at stations
Community licensees see higher pay
Median executive salaries at stations owned by universities and other institutions are substantially lower than those of community licensees, which also include most of the top producing stations. Ten university stations in the top 25 markets don’t report executive compensation and didn’t provide information to Current.
Northeast leads in salaries
The Northeast, where three major production centers for public TV and radio are headquartered, is where the biggest paychecks are cut.
