SBE Shares 2024 Compensation Survey Results

Certified engineers, on average, earn a higher salary

The Society of Broadcast Engineers has released the results of its 2024 compensation survey. The annual study — this year held from April 1 to March 28 — helps determine the salary levels and benefits among broadcast and media technology engineers.

“This survey provides a wealth of useful information, and it adds to the baseline being developed for subsequent surveys to establish compensation trends,” said the SBE in a press release.

The complete results of the survey are available at no charge to SBE members through the SBE Bookstore. Survey results are also available to purchase for non-members.

The survey included 25 questions that gathered information about job titles, broadcast market size and compensation in dollars and offered benefits. SBE membership was not required to take the survey.

“This participation allows us to provide the most accurate data to our members in radio, TV and multimedia technology,” said SBE President Ted Hand in the release. “The SBE provides the information as a service not only to our members, but the industry.”

While all responses remained anonymous, the SBE said demographic data collected included market size, job category/title, age, years working in broadcasting, salary, benefits received and any certification held.

The data is split into radio or TV results, with greater detail on job category and market size.

As in years past, Hand said individuals who hold SBE certifications earn a higher salary as compared to their non-certified counterparts.

“It pays to be SBE-certified,” said Hand. “Both our survey and other industry surveys previously show this ongoing trend.”
