Minorities in Local Radio Newsrooms

A Radio Television News Directors Association/Ball State University study reports that minority representation dropped in local radio newsrooms from 7.9% to 6.4% in the past year.

Just as newsworthy is that minority representation in radio newsrooms (6.4%) is way behind television (22.2%) and the US population (33.6%).

The study also reports that women are underrepresented in radio newsrooms. Public radio stations were included in the study but not reported out separately.
