The prime aim of this study is to find out the Arab Female TV reporters’ perception of ‘job satisfaction’ and to identify the factors which affect job satisfaction of female TV reporters. How ownership and management policy of the TV station could affect job satisfaction among female reporters are among the questions examined in this study. In this research we sought to determine satisfaction with 15 distinct areas of employment (Company policy, Supervision, Relationship w/Peers, Relationship w/boss, Work conditions, Salary, Achievement, Recognition, Work itself, Responsibility, Advancement, Growth, Job Security, Work expectations-Decision making) by using two of the most often used survey instruments (Job Descriptive Index and Job In General) that measure job satisfaction. A total of 200 questionnaires were to be completed by male and female news reporters who are identified as full-time employees of both governmental and Private Arab TV stations (Dubai Media TV channels & Middle East Broadcasting Center (MBC) TV channels). Fredrick Herzberg’s two factor theory, power distance, and masculinity–femininity theory of Hofstede have been chosen to analyze data as well as variables. Moreover, In-depth interviews were conducted with 10 news personnel in governmental and non-governmental TV Stations to enrich the quantitative data with qualitative evidence.
