Paul jokes of his knack for finding urban catastrophe. “Water mains and subway derailments seem to wait for me” he says. Over the years, he says, he has lost countless shoes, socks and pieces of radio gear in floods, fires, and storms in the tri-state area.
He also has a knack for finding the perfect piece of tape. Name the story, and Paul will somehow find someone, somewhere, to say something quirky and interesting about it.
Paul also has covered many stories far less routine such as the crash of TWA Flight 800, the execution of a convicted killer in Oklahoma, the Blizzard of 1996. He was on the scene and on the air within minutes after a gunman’s rampage on the observation deck at The Empire State Building, leading a producer back at the station to note that Paul is just one of those reporters you always hope will be on duty when a big story breaks.
Paul’s voice has been heard on radio stations in Hartford and Boston in the course of a 20 year career. He came to WCBS in 1994.
Paul has won awards for his work over the years from The New York Press Club and The Associated Press.
