For the first time, two media jobs made the list of the year’s worst jobs, according to CareerCast.com. Making the Top 10 were the jobs of broadcaster and newspaper reporter.

"As the digital world continues to take over and provide on-demand information, the need for print newspapers and daily newscasts is diminishing. To be sure, both jobs once seemed glamorous, but on-the-job stress, declining job opportunities and income levels are what landed them on our Worst Jobs list," the story reports.

"You can definitely see a decline in the industry," said David Campbell, a reporter at a Pennsylvania newspaper, which isn’t identified in the article. “As a sports reporter, there used to be several reporters at an event and now, sometimes, I’m the only one.”

Topping the list of the worst jobs of 2012: lumberjack. Other jobs on the list include dairy farmer, oil rig worker, enlisted military soldier, waiter/waitress, dishwasher and butcher.
