Administrative History

Broadcast Services produces radio and television programs for KBYU-FM, KBYU-TV, and commercial stations. It also assists in group viewing, utilizing large screen TV, classroom TV, closed circuit operation and released tapes to stations through the University Broadcasting Service Network. In 1958, BYU purchased an FM radio transmitter from Snow College and was given license to operate in 1960 under the call number of KBRG-FM. The director of the radio and TV center at this was T.M. Williams who served in this capacity until 1966. In June 1961, BYU bought the KLOR franchise and began operating KBYU-TV on channel 11. During 1958, ground was broken in Carterville for a new Motion Picture studio, Broadcast Services, the Photo Studio, and the Audio-Visual Center. A devastating fire caused extensive damage to this building in 1964. In 1965, the four programs consolidated to form the Division of Communication Services. Darrel J. Monson was named head of the department. From 1966 to 1972, Earl J. Glade Jr. served as director of the Broadcast Services department and was responsible for introducing video-taped television instruction into the classrooms. In 1972, Bruce L. Christensen was appointed director and is presently serving in that position.
