The other point is that it used to be that working in a market like Boston
was something people would aspire to.  You had made really made it if you
got a job at a station like WRKO.  Usually it took several years in the
business to get there.  It wasn't a job like working at Home Depot.  Today,
it's not much more than that.

As far as salary surveys go: In most industries they are done by
professional associations or industry publications and depend upon voluntary
participation by people working in the industry.  As a result, they are not
entirely accurate but they give someone a decent idea of industry averages
when negotiating pay.
