Kyle Murdock is an alumni of Howard University’s School Of Communications, class of 2001, and even began his formal education here at Howard University attending the school’s preschool program in the early ’80s. He grew up with an inexplicable passion for all things audio-related and a desire to follow in the footsteps of his uncle, the late Melvin Lindsey, also an alumnus, best known for co-creating the worldwide radio format known as “The Quiet Storm”at the school’s commercial radio station- WHUR 96.3 FM while attending Howard in the 1970s.
Kyle’s path took him down a slightly different road than his uncle, as his interest in music and the creativity he demonstrated as a Radio Production student landed him internships, that subsequently became jobs, at a variety of local radio stations and companies, including WHBC 830am, WHUR, WPGC 95.5 FM where he worked as a producer for popular radio DJ Big Tigger. His first post-college job was as an “audio animator” at the burgeoning XM Satellite Radio where he worked for eight years creating radio imaging for their hip-hop and jazz programming. Kyle left to pursue a full-time career in music as an artist after his group Panacea was signed to the respected record label Rawkus Records, which birthed the careers of hip-hop artists like Mos Def, Talib Kweli and Phaorahe Monch. The opportunity allowed Kyle, known as K-Murdock, to work with a variety of artists like Grammy-nominated R&B singer Raheem Devaughn.
After several years touring domestically and internationally, Kyle returned to his radio roots in 2012 to serve as the creative services director at WHUR. In 2015 when he accepted a position as Director Of Media Learning in the School of Communications.
