According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employment in television broadcasting is expected to increase only 7 percent over the 2008-18 period, slower than the average for all industries combined. Several factors will contribute to this slow growth rate. Consolidation of stations under large networks allows networks to share programming and make better use of workers. New computerized technologies require less specialized training for their operation, reducing the need for certain types of workers, particularly those in editing, recording, and graphics creation. Competition from cable systems, satellite and other pay television services, and from widespread use of the Internet may also contribute to the slower growth in employment.
