Employee spotlight: Myles McDonald

Myles McDonald

When he started on Jan. 9, Myles McDonald became the latest addition to the Broadway Broadband powered by Miami-Cass REMC team. He reports to Parker Long, construction supervisor, and is currently performing aerial construction. Prior to coming to Broadway Broadband, he worked for Comcast as a cable technician.  

McDonald is a native of Logansport and a 2018 graduate of Logansport High School. While in high school, he joined the Army National Guard and served our country for four years.

Fresh out of basic training, McDonald went to work at the Cass County Jail as a guard. While he was growing up, he thought he would like to pursue a career as a police officer. However, after spending time as a guard, McDonald decided to pursue a different path.

He likes being able to work outside and stated that he enjoys the REMC’s more family oriented environment versus the “corporate” environment of his previous job. McDonald also said that he appreciates how each team member is a part of the larger picture of bringing high-speed internet to the underserved in our communities. His advice to anyone starting out in his position is to not be afraid to ask questions and to come in with a readiness to learn.

McDonald enjoys traveling and said the most interesting place he has visited was Las Vegas. He spends much of his spare time coaching boys’ elementary-aged basketball for the YMCA and Babe Ruth baseball to middle school boys.

He is also self-employed, running a sports memorabilia business on the side. What started as a hobby four years ago bloomed into a business a couple of years ago. On his bucket list would be visiting all 32 Major League Baseball stadiums in the United States. 

The staff and board of directors are glad to have him as part of the Broadway Broadband family.
