Your News Director is Most Likely Named Mike, Julie or David

Male_ND_NamesAccording to Hofstra University professor emeritus Bob Papper who is doing his 20th annual survey of the broadcasting industry for RTDNA, news directors are most likely to be in their mid-40s and be named Mike, Jim, or David if they’re men and Jennifer, Kelly, or Julie if they’re women.

“Apparently I have too much time on my hands,” Papper wrote in the study.

He also says the above named news directors have been at their stations for an average of 5.7 years.
