Paul is a two-time regional Edward R. Murrow Award winner. He's been recognized many times by The Kansas City Press Club, Missouri Broadcasters Association and Mid-America EMMY Awards for his work.

Paul currently serves on the advisory board for The Salvation Army's Springfield Corps.

Paul started his journalism career in the early 1980's at a small radio station.“It had a signal that went maybe five miles – tops,” he said.

Since then, Paul worked in stations with much stronger signals throughout the Midwest.

Paul earned a degree in journalism at the University of Missouri-Columbia. While in school, he anchored and reported for the university’s National Public Radio affiliate, KBIA. He also worked for the university’s NBC affiliate in Columbia, KOMU-TV. That led to his next job at the CBS-TV affiliate in Jefferson City, KRCG.

After a few years, Paul moved to Terre Haute, Ind, where he ran the Illinois bureau for WTHI-TV. He then moved from the bureau to the main office in Terre Haute to cover the police and court beats.

WLUK-TV in Green Bay, Wis., hired him next. There, he created a court and police beat and won journalism awards in Wisconsin for his coverage of daily news events.

In May 1996, Paul moved to WKRC-TV in Cincinnati where he anchored weekend newscasts and reported during the week. He also won journalism awards in Cincinnati, including three times being honored as one of Ohio’s “Best Reporters” in contests sponsored by The Associated Press. He also won awards for breaking news and feature reports, including regional Emmy Awards.

Paul spearheaded a campaign to create, “A Secret Safe Place For Newborns” in the Cincinnati region. After he covered a story about a newborn thrown in a trash can, he wondered why a program in Alabama couldn’t be started in the Cincinnati area to save newborns. The program began in one county and eventually became state law. Several lives have been saved in the Cincinnati area since the program started.

He's been married since 1990. Paul and his wife have three daughters. He enjoys running several times a week and has competed in 5K, 10K, half marathon and marathon races.
