MTSU alumnus Andrew Huether is the technical director of National Public Radio’s Studio 1.


He recently worked with members of Washington’s National Symphony Orchestra on the NPR afternoon show “All Things Considered.” The orchestra provided live background music for the program.

“Several times in the past, our afternoon news program ‘All Things Considered’ has invited musicians to be a ‘band for a day’ for the show,” Huether said. “All of the music that is part of the show — breaks, themes, interstitials, etc. — is played live from our Studio 1 performance space and routed to the on-air Studio 31 and mixed into the show.”

Heuther is a 2012 graduate of the Recording Arts and Technologies M.F.A. program. The Master of Fine Arts in Recording Arts and Technologies offers preparation for advanced work in audio production, recording and integrated electronic media.
