Whem Pamela Martin arrived in the CKNW Newsroom in 1976 Jack Bennest was chosen to show her the ropes on "The Beat" ...

Today they met up again in Oliver at a function for The Premier ...

Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

In another thread later today

Norm Mazuren surfaces :occasion5:

His question I could not answer - what do people in radio make today?

Norm says he left radio 20 or more years ago and was earning $40grand. :groovy:

I said the average wage of an on air/off air non salesmen/mgr would be lower than that :violent1:

Any takers out there - From story/production producers to on air talk show/dj personality Vancouver to Hope
what are the wages and averages?

Wages?

At the Vancouver TV stations, they have been "Intern" (*as in un-paid) heavy. No Bennies, no pay - just 'work experience' - and oh, gee, there is no F/T job waiting at the end of the phony rainbow, for far too many.

Is it the same in radio?

Wages have fallen in the Industry, since 2000....when I fully believe Radio Executives across Canada starting chopping the experienced staff (*read boomers) - and making even more more profit.

Cynical, you bet.

I wish all rookies all the best - it ain't the same - sorry ~ it was always a dog fight, but at least you got paid to work, and there was limited "V/T"'s used.
