Minority workforce numbers have increased in several areas of broadcast media, but minority news personnel hiring has not kept pace with the overall population growth of non-white residents, the latest research on newsroom diversity by the Radio Television Digital News Association and Hofstra University shows.

The annual survey found minorities in 23.1 percent of the jobs in newsrooms at non-Hispanic TV stations. In radio newsrooms, minority representation fell by 0.4 percent and remained especially low (5.6 percent) at commercial stations. Newspaper numbers are expected later this summer. Minorities comprise about 38 percent of the U.S. population.
