What a Broadcast Technician does

Abilities & Traits Required


Experienced technicians can become supervisory technicians or chief engineers. A Master's degree in engineering is needed to become a chief engineer at a large TV station.

The best way to prepare for a broadcast and sound technician job is to obtain a technical degree in engineering or electronics. This is particularly true for those who hope to advance to supervisory positions or jobs at large stations or the networks.

In the movie industry people are hired as apprentices and they work their way up. Employers usually hire experienced freelance technicians on a project-by-project basis. Reputation and determination are important in getting jobs.


Television stations usually pay higher salaries than radio stations; commercial broadcasting usually pays more than public broadcasting; and stations in large markets pay more than those in small ones.

Starting salaries are in the range of Rs. 18000-25000. With two to three years experience in handling sophisticated equipment and software it could move to Rs 25000-45000 a month.
