Paul has spent over 30 years on the radio, including the last decade in St. Louis on KMOX and KTRS. He now co-hosts the weekly "Final Table" poker radio show with Dennis Phillips on KFNS/St. Louis each Tuesday from 3pm to 4pm CT, with podcasts available via iTunes.

Since leaving fulltime work, Paul has filled in occasionally as a radio talk show host across the country on stations like WLS/Chicago, KIRO/Seattle, WMAL/Washington, WHAS/Louisville, and WBT/Charlotte.

Before coming to St. Louis, Paul hosted morning shows in Washington DC, New York City, Philadelphia, and Hartford. In addition to his ratings success, Paul has won 6 Achievement In Radio Awards, published two trivia calendars, been named one of the most influential talk radio hosts in America, done live broadcasts from around the world (including two Super Bowls and the Olympics), and hosted the first American radio show to broadcast live from the Soviet Union to the United States and then back again via Radio Moscow.

Paul has helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for many charities, emceed dozens of concerts, trivia nights, and comedy shows, appeared as a cable TV pundit, and was even immortalized on the cover of Snack Foods magazine.

Paul has one wife and one daughter, who is usually annoyed by everything he says and does.
