PMBA Benchmarking Survey


PMBA Benchmarking Survey


DOWNLOAD (only primary contacts should submit the survey)

Submission Deadline: December 31, 2021


After weathering a busy and complicated time for stations, PMBA is excited to relaunch the Compensation Insights benchmarking survey. We respect your time and have therefore made submitting your data as easy as possible. Because you already sent this information to CPB, the submission process will take no more than 15 minutes! Our template was specifically designed to match up with CPB's submission process to make your participation as easy as possible.

Both member and nonmember stations are invited to participate in our ongoing effort to collect trusted and validated information. Our interactive platform will allow members and participating nonmembers (for a limited time) to benchmark their station against multiple data points, including radio and TV staff salaries, benefit programs offered, employee counts, and more. 

Please note: we are collecting data for 2020, therefore, if you submitted your 2019 data last year you will need to resubmit updated data.

We appreciate your continued support!

How to Submit Your Station's Data:

Download the template. PMBA has worked closely with our survey partner, Dynamic Benchmarking, to create a custom template that mirrors the CPB data collection system. Our goal is to make the data entry process for this project as easy as possible.

Complete the form. The primary contact for your station is the only person authorized to submit data. If you would like someone else from your station to complete this form, you may forward it along to the correct staff member. However, it must be returned by the primary contact for submission.

Your form should be emailed directly to Dynamic Benchmarking at Please do not submit your form to PMBA. One of the primary reasons PMBA has contracted with a third-party partner is to ensure total anonymity of your station’s data. No other PMBA member or staff member will ever see your submission.


Important Notes:

Compare to the CPB reporting system here.

Changing primary contact. Please contact to update your station’s contact information.

Protecting your data. In the end product, PMBA will only show results in aggregate, provided enough data points are available in that data set to protect anonymity. A minimum of five data points for a given set of parameters will be required for an end-user to see the results. So, please respond! The more stations that participate, the more information we will have available for the whole public broadcast system.
