Randy Smith is a wannabe DJ who grew up to be a Broadcast Engineer. He was born in California and came of age listening to Los Angeles Top-40 radio at a time when AM was "boss." After high school and four years of military service, Smith toured a small television station in Illinois where he first saw a living, breathing, 2-inch quadraplex video tape machine. From that time he was hooked on broadcast engineering.

Smith's 40-year career includes work in small and large market radio/television broadcast engineering, punctuated by several years working in mobile telephone product development. He thinks that he's pretty good at fixing almost anything -- particularly electronics that produce and radiate radio signals. He believes his current career goal is to facilitate UNT/Media Arts students' learning by providing them the best possible broadcast technical facilities.

Smith is a U.S. Air Force veteran and possesses a Bachelor of Science, Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Chicago. He is also a graduate of the Master of Project Management Program, Keller Graduate School - Chicago. He is a member of the Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE) and holds certifications from the organization.
