Administrative History

From the Collection:

Broadcast Services is a division of Brigham Young University's College of Fine Arts & Communications. Broadcast Services provides four main services for the public, BYU television and radio stations, KBYU-TV and KBYU-FM radio. BYU Television provides family programming 24 hours every day, including BYU sports, firesides, devotionals, faculty symposia, Music and the Spoken Word, and General Conference. These programs are only accessible through direct satellite broadcasting because it is not licensed by the FCC. BYU radio is also dedicated to 24 hour family programming and carries many of the same programs as BYU Television with the same emphasis on LDS and BYU programs. This new addition to Broadcast Services was initiated in 2002 and can be accessed worldwide on dish network, cable, and the Internet. BYU began broadcasting KBYU programs from campus in 1965 and has continually strived to provide programs that would portray the values held by Brigham Young University and help in achieving the aims of a BYU education: strengthen spirituality, enlarge intellect, build character, and pursuit of lifelong service and learning. As a member of PBS, KBYU-TV provides much of the western United States with quality children's programs, nature shows, and documentaries, as well as other BYU programs. The oldest member of the broadcast services is KBYU-FM, which began as an AM station in the 1940's. This first collegiate station west of the Mississippi didn't become an FM station until 1970, and in 1978 changed to an all-classical repertoire continued today.
