Abstract: The purpose of this study was to find out the job satisfaction level and primary causes of it among the radio journalists of Ethiopian Broadcasting Corporation, Radio Ethiopia. Being one of the journalists in this same organization, the researcher has been able to obtain all the required support from both the individual journalists and the management of the corporation in all aspects. Having all this favorable conditions the researcher employed a mixed research approach so as to fully entertain the problem in focus. To this end, 48 journalists have been selected using a systematic random sampling method to fill a questionnaire, and about six people were purposely selected for interview i.e. a director, a technician, a sound and documentation team leader, a senior reporter, and two senior editors. The major findings of the study were low job satisfaction of journalists which were caused by the working conditions, organizational system, and relationship with immediate line managers/editors/supervisors. More specifically, the compound of the organization where the journalists are currently working lack modern facilities, adequate logistic services, necessary inputs, etc. Besides, the journalists were denied of benefit packages such as insurance coverage, house allowance, and transportation allowance contrary to senior and middle level managers of the corporation. The other major cause in relation to the organizational system was lack of consistent guidelines in the reward, promotion, evaluation, and assignment of employees in general and the journalist in particular creating lots of dissatisfaction. Due to this reason the majority of the managers in the corporation were rated much less than the majority of experienced and competent journalists. The poorly rated management was identified as the major cause for the dissatisfaction and cause of conflicts. And the possible strategies to reverse the dissatisfaction of staff were expected to come from the top management of the corporation.
