J Kyle curates WBEZ audio for the voice and smart speaker space. Through his work he adapts journalism and storytelling created and produced by our content teams for Google Assistant’s “Your News Update,” NPR One, Amazon Alexa and other emerging listening platforms. Before moving to product, he served as technical director and engineer for our daily talk show, “Reset With Jenn White.”
Prior to joining WBEZ he completed a fellowship with Northwestern University’s Knight Lab, researching sound design for virtual reality applications. His first visit to our studio complex was on a cross country trip by train from Boston to Los Angeles… a trip which he probably won’t take by train again.
