TV staffs grow

The number of TV station reporters nationwide grew by several hundred last year, but the number of radio journalists fell by a corresponding level.

A soon-to-be-released report from the D.C.-based Radio & Television News Directors Foundation claims that the average middle- and small-market TV station newsroom added one employee in 1993.

Those gains offset an average staff reduction of two employees at TV stations in the top 50 markets.

Of network affiliates that responded, 2.4% said they had no news operation, up from 1.9% a year ago. Some 38% of independent TV stations said they had newsrooms, up slightly from a year ago.

One in six radio stations did no locally originated programming in 1993, compared to one in seven in 1992.
