Guests range from leaders in business and industry to educators, to musicians and authors to volunteers. All have stories to tell that are interesting, informative and thought-provoking.
Latter-day Profiles is produced by students in coordination with faculty and staff advisors. That means the students research the guests, schedule the interviews, run the cameras and edit the programs.
BYU-Idaho Communication faculty, Brian Howard, hosts the program and works closely with the students in the production process. Currently Latter-day Profiles airs Sunday afternoons at 2:35 Mountain Time on BYUTV. Twenty eight new episodes are produced every year.
At BYU he worked as an assignment editor for the university’s student-run integrated television, radio, newspaper, and internet newsroom. He also worked as a producer and video editor at the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah, and as a producer and director at KBYU Television.
Howard earned his Ph.D. in Education from the University of Idaho in 2010. He currently teaches broadcast journalism and mass media courses at BYU-Idaho and is the host and executive producer of Latter-day Profiles. Latter-day Profiles is produced by students, and is a television talk show that features noteworthy members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
