Description: This poster discusses research on creating new jobs in the television broadcasting industry. Today's society is extremely information driven. What stocks should I invest in? Where is the best place to live? Who are the celebrities dating? One survey released by the Pew Research Center shows that 78% of adults queried get their news from local television news stations (McAdams, 2010). On-air talent and behind-the-scenes technicians are responsible for delivering television news daily. However, the availability of jobs in the broadcasting industry is declining due to usage of the Internet as a top news source. New jobs must be created to continue the quality and quantity of newscasts at current television stations. The easiest way to create jobs in the broadcast news industry is to split the duties and salaries of existing jobs.
