Good news on broadcast news front

The Center for Media and Public Affairs recently announced the results of its annual survey of how often minorities and women correspondents get on the network news.

The good news is that the level of minorities and women reporting stories for the network reached its highest level since 1990.

For example, 15 percent of all network stories were reported by correspondents of color. Twenty-eight percent of all network stories were reported by female correspondents.

Again, there’s still much work to do. But the trend is good.
