“I loved working with Paul. He is creative, bright and fun. He has a mind for marketing, and all the focus and energy to make ideas happen.”

Alan Mason
President, K-LOVE and Air1 Radio Network

“Paul is a catalyst to the gifts in others. He is passionate about God, family, radio, injustice, children, and whatever he is focused on. Thankfully, he continues to help me focus and grow. For your team, your project, or your personal professional growth, he will infuse passion and help you make important, strategic decisions.”

Lisa Williams
Host of Life with Lisa Williams

“I can’t recommend Paul highly enough. He knows his stuff. He’s a joy to work with. But even better: He understands the wider culture – what people are really looking for when they tune in. Paul asks the right questions, and he just makes things sound better. I can’t think of a station that wouldn’t profit from spending time with him.”

Brant Hansen
Author and Host of The Brant Hansen Show

“I have never worked with someone with so much energy! Paul is one of those people who understands that in order to find that one great idea that works, you have to sift through a lot of ideas that don’t work! He never gives up, and is passionate about what he has his hands in. Paul was great to work with, and I hope our paths can cross again one day!”

Radio is Art

Somewhere along the way, there has probably been some artist who captured your heart. For me, it's Claude Monet. Back in the late 80's, we got a chance to walk through The Louvre in Paris and we brought home two Monet prints that hang in my house. Often I stop in...

The One Thing

Rube Goldberg Radio Contesting

Rube Goldberg was an illustrator famous for depicting complicated gadgets that performed simple tasks in convoluted ways. A Rube Goldberg radio contest is similarly complicated. "Most Christian radio station contests are WAY too complicated. People aren’t going to...

Transparency

Let's talk transparency on Christian radio. Think about its purpose and the different ways to be transparent. Recently, some really talented radio people have said to me, “I don’t know how to share my personal life on the air.” So it got me thinking about the why of...

How Do I Be Good?

Steve Martin on the first question you should ask if you want to be a successful comedian: I was talking to some students and they were saying things like, 'How do I get an agent?', 'Where do I get my headshots?' and I just thought ... shouldn't the first thing you...

I LOVE that song!

“Oh man, I love that one.” How many times have you heard this? A song on the radio ends, and the DJ says, "Oh man, I love that song!" I don’t care. Because the fact that you like that song is not about me. The fact that you like that song is not topical, relevant, or...
