Kyle Smith

Director of Content and Programming at WYEP

Hello. I'm Kyle, I'm the Director on Content and Programming for 91.3fm WYEP. I help to coordinate all on-air Programming, studio sessions, WYEP's Summer Music Festival and all events inside and in our community .

I've been involved with WYEP since December of 1998. I started as the Host of the Morning Mix and spent eight and a half years bring the morning mix to music fans in Pittsburgh.

The listeners are what makes this job so rewarding, challenging, and a new experience each day. We all share the love of music, discovery, and community.

Some of my favorite memories at the station have involved studio sessions with Michael Franti, Band of Horses, The Wallflowers, and meeting Patti Smith, Ben Harper, and the late Warren Zevon. :

Some current music that I'm enjoying

Ra Ra Riot, Beta Love Sean Rowe The Salesman and The Shark Band Of Horses Mirage Rock

Benjamin Gibbard Former Lives eels Wonderful, Glorious

The Avett Brothers The Carpenter and Of Monsters and Men My Head is an Animal

Save the date of June 28th for the WYEP 2013 Summer Music Festival

Besides radio and music, there are many great local restaurants to check out. I'm a huge baseball and hockey fan and root on the Buccos, Penguins, Twins, and Vikings.
