Window Dressing Revisited.
Loukas, Helen Franzwa
Job title information from seven television stations is used in this paper to demonstrate that minorities and women continue to be underemployed in broadcasting industry positions that have power or policymaking authority. It is pointed out that although minorities and women constitute 42 percent of all reporters and anchors on the local news shows of these stations, they have made virtually no gains in administrative or managerial jobs since 1975. It is also pointed out that the specific job titles held by minorities and women show not only that they hold relatively few managerial positions at local stations, but also that they rarely hold executive or policymaking jobs. It is concluded that the Federal Communication Commission's (FCC's) equal employment opportunity effort must be enhanced. (Author/EB)
