Skylerr Byrd is from the Land of Electra, TX. (Yes, that’s how you spell her name.) She moved to Canyon, TX for school at West Texas A&M University. She originally started out as a theater performance major. It wasn’t until COVID hit that she switched her major to Broadcast Journalism. She graduated with a B.A. degree in 2022.
While Skylerr was focused on the writing side of Journalism, she discovered a passion for videography, photography, and RADIO shortly after switching majors. She got a job with her college radio station, KWTS, as a tech lab assistant. It was a year after being with KWTS that she started her first radio show, “K-bops with Birdie”.
Soon after graduating, Skylerr spent a year working in college and children’s ministry. While learning many skills, she realized she missed the world of Broadcast Journalism. So, she started searching for jobs. It took a few months of searching, but Skylerr was able to get on at Alpha Media in October of 2023. She helps with production, board operation, and now hosts “After Hours with Skylerr Byrd”. You can hear her weekday evenings from 7 to 11 on 100.9 The Eagle!
When Skylerr isn’t on air, you’ll probably find her at the gym lifting weights or rock climbing with her husband, Chase. She loves reading and may even get caught with a book in her hand while at work! On days when she has enough down time, she enjoys writing, drawing, video games, and movie marathons with Chase.
