what is the starting packages for journalism

Shudhanshu Gupta Student Expert 27th May, 2020
As you know journalism course is having good scope in future because there is plenty of some genuine and honest journalist in now a days so if it is about more authenticate and real informative news channel or journalist so it will be highly demanded, as the salary depends upon the news channel you join and on which post you will be, still on an average if we consider starting salary so it would be 6000 to 10000 per month as a trainee, but later on with promotion your salary would be increasing if your work would be appreciable.
Best of luck.
