Broadcast engineer

Broadcast engineers play an integral role in the radio and television industries, where they're responsible for keeping scheduled broadcasts running, setting up live broadcasts in the field or studio, maintaining and updating broadcasting hardware and software, and addressing broadcasting problems as they arise.

My background before taking on this role here at MTPR/KUFM included also being a broadcasting engineer for MontanaPBS/KUSM down in Bozeman for 2.5 years. We were essentially responsible for maintaining and repairing anything and everything in the plant as well as remote site visits/maintenance, planning/ordering/executing equipment acquisition, constructing transmitters, component-level analysis and repair, etc.
