Where are the Broads in Broadcasting?

According to a survey, TV news is still a man's world.

In an annual report by Women's Media Center analyzing 27,758 pieces of content, 62.1 percent of news in 2014 was produced by a man. 

The report, titled "The Status of Women in the U.S. Media 2015," found that women are significantly underrepresented when it comes to all areas of the media industry, including reporters, broadcasters, contributors, writers, editors and guests.

Last year, women were present on camera in the evening news just 32 percent of the time. Only 37 percent of print news stories were reported by a woman; just 38 percent of news articles in 2014 featured a female byline.

The gender gap is particularly stark when it comes to political news. Sixty-five percent of all U.S. political stories in 2014 were reported by a man. With the 2016 presidential election fast approaching, the lack of female voice is shocking.

“Our research shows that media needs to do better,” Women’s Media Center president Julie Burton said. “The bottom line is this: Overwhelmingly, men still dominate media. Women are 51 percent of the population -- but hardly equal partners in telling the story."

This gap really stand out when it comes to network newscasts. In fact, it is very hard to spot a woman on CBS's Evening News and ABC News isn't much better:
