Journo grad pay … no net for Iran … Sydney’s radio wreck …

How much does a graduate journalist earn? Elizabeth Redman did some digging to find out that most start on $35,000-$47,000, with those at rural jobs at the lower end. Plus other media news.

Journo graduate: what am I worth? I’ve been job hunting over the last few months and some of the editors who have interviewed me have asked how much I would expect as a starting salary. For example, at the end of last year an editor from a fairly fancy, corporate-sounding organisation asked that question. I didn’t know what to say. Should I have increased the figure based on the fact that I would have needed to move interstate to work for them? Or should I have kept it low to show I wasn’t grasping? In the end, I avoided answering.
