Douglas McKinlay to present June 19 BYU devotional address

Douglas McKinlay, a teaching professor in the Communications Department, will give an address titled “The Approachable Master: Life's Critical Relationship” at the weekly Brigham Young University devotional Tuesday, June 19, at 11:05 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall.

It will be broadcast live on KBYU-TV (Channel 11), BYUtv, KBYU-FM (89.1), BYU-Radio and at byutv.org, as well as on campus in the Varsity Theater in the Wilkinson Student Center. The Joseph Smith Building auditorium will not show this devotional. For rebroadcast and reprint information, visit byutv.org or speeches.byu.edu.

McKinlay graduated from BYU in 1969 with a bachelor’s degree in communications and a master’s degree in mass communications. McKinlay moved to New York and found work in the advertising department at General Electric. While working there he also taught courses in mass communications at Schenectady Community College.

After leaving General Electric, McKinlay became the executive vice president at Keiler Advertising, an agency bringing in $50 million a year in the late ‘70s. In 1980, McKinlay separated from Keiler and started McKinlay Advertising, which later became McKinlay and Partners. For the next 16 years he directed the company as it grew into a solid agency in the Connecticut market.

As an associate teaching professor, he helped design a creative track in marketing communications. The track consists of seven courses, two of which had never been taught before at BYU. McKinlay teaches a class on writing for various media and a class designed to polish a portfolio.
