BYU Radio Reconstructs

Brigham Young University builds a new facility for its five radio streams.

Operating a combined radio and TV network is no simple task. Brigham Young University recently completed a facility upgrade of its radio and TV facilities to implement updated technology across all its broadcast channels as the operations moved to new facilities.

BYU Radio

The radio and TV operation were in a collocated facility before the move, although there was a satellite office about five miles south of the campus that housed some administrative offices and TV post-production. Consolidating the content creation facilities with the distribution facilities brought some efficiency in transferring media between those services, and made collaboration easier with administrative functions.

BYU originates and distributes five radio streams from the new facility. BYU Radio is the heart of the operation. Launched in 2002, BYU Radio reaches an international audience with the best of BYU- and LDS-themed programming. BYU Radio is available on Dish Network, the Internet, selected radio and cable systems throughout the United States, and via satellite.

The BYU Radio library contains thousands of hours of lectures, conferences, BYU sporting events, performance programming, and campus devotionals on a variety of subjects. BYU Radio features a mix of peaceful and uplifting music and a variety of live broadcasts, including concerts from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and sporting events.

BYU Radio Instrumental is a companion station to BYU Radio. It features LDS-themed music for international audiences as a Web-only service.

BYU Radio International offers two separate language services: Spanish and Portuguese. Like the Instrumental service, it is a Web-only audio service

KBYU-FM, Classical 89, broadcasts classical music from an extensive CD library, original productions, broadcasts of local and BYU arts groups' performances, as well as national and international programs. Classical 89 also presents coverage of local arts events, news from NPR and the BBC World Service, KBYU-FM morning and afternoon news, and several hours each week of Brigham Young University programs that include addresses from BYU devotionals, forums, Education Week, BYU Women's Conference and other events.
