Radio Producers

Outlook

The U.S. Department of Labor predicts faster-than-average employment growth for all producers (radio and television) through 2024. However, job growth in the radio industry, specifically, has been curtailed by several factors in recent years. In the past, radio station ownership was highly regulated by the government, limiting the number of stations a person or company could own. Recent deregulation has made multiple-station ownership and consolidation of offices possible. Radio stations now are bought and sold at a more rapid pace. This may result in a radio station changing formats as well as entire staffs. Though some radio producers are able to stay at a station over a period of several years, people going into radio should be prepared to change employers at some point in their careers.
