Broadcast Engineer Jobs

Broadcast Engineer Overview

Broadcast Engineers are responsible for ensuring that television and radio broadcasts remain crystal clear while they are on the air. These individuals prevent white noise from occurring by adjusting the broadcast signals, and their main responsibilities include programming all of the shows to go out on time. Broadcast Engineers are also in charge of repairing the systems and updating the software when necessary.

Broadcast Engineer Educational Requirements

A minimum of an associate degree is usually required to work as a Broadcast Engineer although many begin as interns during college. Most Broadcast Engineers have bachelor's degrees. Specific courses that relate directly to Broadcast Engineering can be taken at colleges or technical schools. A large amount of on-the-job training is usually given as individual stations and networks have different broadcast equipment. Previous knowledge of media broadcasting, proficiency with computers and technology, critical thinking skills and the ability to communicate clearly are all required.

Broadcast Engineer Job Market

There are currently just over 36,000 Broadcast Technicians employed in the United States. This number is projected to grow 3 percent by 2022. Though skilled Broadcast Engineers are in demand at small, local stations, the growth of this field overall has stalled. As smaller stations do not pay as much, many Broadcast Engineers try to move up in the field to positions such as Broadcast Engineering Chief, resulting in the vacancies in those lower markets. This shift is a lateral movement in jobs more than an actual growth.

Broadcast Engineer Salary

A Broadcast Engineer's salary is very heavily dependent upon where they work. The average hourly wage is around $25 an hour with an income that ranges from $58,000 per year to $63,000 per year. Some Broadcast Engineers who work for major networks can make as much as $105,000 per year. Interns are generally paid a much lower wage or no wage.
