Paula Paul – GMD

March 20, 2013

Someone once said, “If you don’t have a smile, I’ll give you one of mine.” If you’re ever at the Greater Media Detroit offices and you feel in the need of a smile, look no further than Traffic Director Paula Paul.

Paula has been a member of the Greater Media family for over 11 years. She found her passion for radio early while attending Specs Howard School of Broadcasting. Paula shared with us that she was lured to radio because of its creativity.

In the beginning of her career Paula focused on copywriting and production. She soon found herself drawn to traffic. Here’s how Paula sees it, “Traffic is all about working the puzzle. I love making sure that each piece is in its place. You know the puzzle is complete when the log is ready for the next day.”

When we asked Paula about some of her favorite things about Greater Media Detroit she responded immediately with “The People! It’s great to work with people that you like. Our team is like my work family.”

Paula is thrilled be a part of the GMD Traffic Team. “I really couldn’t do it without the whole team. One of the perks is being able to work with my fellow Traffic Director Dana Knight. She’s my Traffic Buddy and Soul Sister.”

When not at work, Paula LOVES spending time with her family. Son Chris is finishing his undergraduate degree and getting ready to head to law school and son Jimmy is studying at Michigan State University.

With a bit of empty nest syndrome setting in, she and her significant other John find themselves taking on lots of house projects. Of course Paula’s interest in design shows on HGTV and cooking shows on the Food Network may have played a role in the increase of “projects” they’ve undertaken.

In her free time Paula and John pursue two their favorite pastimes, films and traveling. One of her favorite spots to visit so far has been Sedona, AZ. She and John are on a quest to visit all of the National Parks and each of Michigan’s over 100 lighthouses. They also plan trips to film festivals.

At Greater Media Detroit, we’re proud that Paula Paula and her smile are a part of our team. Every day, Paula makes Greater Media Great.
