Radio also has access to all three television studios. One TV studio accommodates a live studio audience. Tie-lines between the TV audio network and radio network to allow simulcast of events originating from that location.

Beck Associates integrated the facility, and consulted on the final design. BYU involved Ascent Media in the initial design phase of the building, while VCBO Architecture and Okland Construction built the facility. Russ Berger Design Group provided acoustic guidance.

BYU Radio will also be available on Sirius XM starting July 1, 2011.

What made this project particularly challenging was the diversity of technical spaces that all live under the same roof.
