Annual Compensation Surveys

Since 2002, CTHRA's Annual Compensation Surveys have provided the cable and satellite industry with timely, industry-specific compensation benchmarks and analysis. In 2017, 58 participants (11 MSOs and 47 programmers) participated in the surveys. Participants represented the majority of the industry's employers, including eight of the nine largest MSO's, one satellite delivery company, the top national cable networks, broadcast networks and new digital content providers. The survey results are industry-specific, providing an in-depth analysis of pay practices for more than 185,000 incumbents, including both exempt and nonexempt positions ranging from technicians to top executives.

The Croner Company, a leading compensation consulting firm specializing in compensation plan design, compensation surveys and organizational design, develops the surveys and collects and analyzes the data, separating results into two participant categories: distributors and programmers (cable programmers, broadcast networks, digital and other media companies). Given the highly confidential survey data, the results from any given company cannot be seen. Only summary information pertaining to all participants is available. This reporting approach complies with Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regulation and encourages participation without fear of exposing proprietary information to the public.
