As the morning news anchor on FOX40, I can be found on the big red couch weekday mornings from 5-10 a.m. In years past, I was one of “The Answer Guys” on The Discovery Channel and a regular contributor to the nationally syndicated Evening Magazine (snagged a couple of Emmy Awards along the way).
I’m proud to have shared a morning radio microphone for 20 years with my friend Phil Cowan—anybody remember “The Paul & Phil Show?” I’m a Sac State grad, a frustrated novelist, and a runner of marathons (Boston twice). My wife and I live in Granite Bay. We have three lovely daughters, two handsome sons-in-law, and three beautiful grandsons.
