The internet has caused massive disruption across the media landscape, causing a surge in job insecurity at traditional establishments.

But now we have a good look at the numbers.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics has put together a presentation on the recent history and direction of media jobs. It’s not pretty.

Across several different industries (radio, TV, newspapers, film, etc.) there’s been a steady downward march in employment.

Total media jobs peaked at the beginning of the decade.

Employment in the book/periodical/music industry has been on a steady downward trend, and in 2011 the bottom completely fell out of the industry.

Sound recording? Same deal.
