Types of jobs in cable TV and in broadcasting
October 05, 2000
Installers and repairers and customer service representatives are by far the most common types of jobs in the cable and pay television industry, while announcers, advertising sales agents, and broadcast technicians rank highest in radio and television broadcasting.
Installers and repairers (21 percent) and customer service representatives (18 percent) together make up nearly two-fifths of the employment in the cable and pay TV industry.
Radio and TV broadcasting employment, by contrast, is concentrated among announcers (19 percent), advertising sales agents (10 percent) and broadcast technicians (9 percent)—that announcers occupy the top of this list most likely reflects the "radio" portion of the industry more than the "television" portion.
