The latest RTDNA/Hofstra University Annual Survey finds the percentage of minorities is up a full percent in television from a year ago -- and even more in radio. The percentage of minority news directors also went up in both television and radio. And the percentage of minority news directors at non-Hispanic TV stations set a new high mark -- for the second year in a row.
Women overall in TV news stayed almost exactly the same, women TV news directors passed the 30% mark (30.2%) for the first time ever. Women in radio news and women radio news directors both went up noticeably.
