One fifth of all journalists now live in NYC, LA or D.C., finds Stop the Presses

by | Jan 16, 2023

Employment for journalists has fallen steadily at newspaper in recent decades, but it has grown among broadcasting and internet publishers, according to Stop the Presses, a study by Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy, reports Television News Daily.

According to Television News Daily, from 1990 to 1999, “there were 251,000 newspaper jobs and 241900 in broadcasting. But from 2010 to 2020, newspaper positions plummeted to 93,400. In contrast, broadcasting employed 339,900, and internet publishing 87,200.

The number of bachelor’s degrees peaked in 2002, with 16,300 degrees awarded. The awarded of master’s degrees hit a high of 2,000 in 2014 and 2015.”

Sadly, continues the report, “85% of journalism majors pursue occupations other than those of news analyst, reporter and correspondent or editor.

“Women now comprise roughly 40% of news editors and reporters. And women now dominate master’s programs.

Whites made up 75% of newsroom employees, down from 80% in the 2010-2020 period, down from 80% in 2000-2009 and 91% in 1990-1999.

“One fifth of all journalists now live in New York, Los Angeles or Washington, DC.”
