Kyle Remund: Communications

Kyle was a radio producer for Grandeur BYU Broadcasting during Fall 2023.

Briefly explain what you did and the result of your internship.

I worked at BYUradio as a producer in charge of making promotional material for the radio station. The promos that I made aired (and continue to air) on the traditional radio broadcast as well as the internet broadcast for BYUradio. I also helped with other projects like content curation, creating show openings, and even courting business partnerships for BYU Athletics. I learned a lot about audio production and voiceover during my time here. Skills that have helped me in school and have been huge boosts to my resume as I look for work after graduation. Speaking of, this job helped me learn where I want to take my career. Before working here, I didn't know I had such a passion for audio production, but now I am applying for jobs to keep doing more of it!

What did you learn on your internship that you were not expecting to learn?

Where do I start? I learned details about audio engineering that I had never heard of before, I learned lots of surprising information about careers in journalism, voiceover, and other forms of media production. I also learned many good lessons about networking.

How have your future plans changed because of what you learned from your internship experience?

Well, before I started working at BYUradio 4 years ago, I was a chemical engineering major. I learned that I wanted to work in communications through this job. Then, during the time that I've used it as my internship, I've discovered that I don't want to be a reporter, but instead work on a more creatively-oriented form of media production. This job has been perhaps the single biggest factor in setting me on course toward my career producing audio and performing as a voiceover artist.

Please share how your experience led to personal inspiration or insightful revelation.

Well, I've already shared how I discovered not only the career path I wanted, but much about how to get there. Another thing I haven't mentioned is that I've learned to not be afraid to pursue it. I was terrified when I felt that I needed to change majors away from chemical engineering. Doubts abounded about whether I could provide for my family. It has been a journey of prayer, fasting, and lots of help from my wife and the people at BYUradio. Today, I know what I want to do, I know how I'm going to do it, and I certainly know that the Lord has led me through this path.

Would you recommend this internship to other students?

100%! BYU Broadcasting is an amazing place to work and the people here are superb! I've not only learned a lot, I've been supported and mentored better than I could ever hoped for! And I have gained a lot of valuable experience that I just couldn't have gotten in my classes.

Is there anything else you would like to say regarding your internship? Why?

I can't think of a better place to have done my internship than BYU Broadcasting!

I recorded many of my promos on this mic in Studio 7 at BYUradio
