There is no "maximum." You could be on 60 Minutes, and make a fortune. You could be reporter at a struggling newspaper, and need food stamps to make ends meet. Journalism is in a state of flux ever since the advent of the internet. There's no denying that it is a tough field. I worked with a lot of news reporters who lost their jobs. Most of them did not find new jobs in journalism - they transitioned into something else. By the year 2026, it is predicted there will be 4500 fewer reporters nationwide than in 2016. There is a lot of information at this link, including salaries.


This is not to say you should not get a degree in journalism. But I encourage you to do a lot of research first.

The sky is the limit. In journalism as in any other profession, you’ll find people earning the minimum and a top payment. If you love your profession more likely you’re to get a good job and as a consequence to have a good salary. For reference, you can look at the web sites below.
