Paul Flahive

Producer - "The Source"

Paul Flahive is the producer for Texas Public Radio's live, call-in show, "The Source." He has worked in public radio on and off since he before graduating from the University of Iowa with a degree in journalism and political science. While there he worked for the local public radio station, WSUI/KSUI, as a production assistant on their show "Talk of Iowa" as well as a reporter for weekend programs. 

Flahive's love of the audio feature led him east to work for the Third Coast International Audio Festival as an assistant, which was at the time a part of Chicago Public Radio. From there he moved to Alaska to run a journalism-based, after-school program for teenagers called the Alaska Teen Media Institute. Taking a break from full-time journalism, he ran an outreach program for homeless, at-risk youth and victims of human trafficking for Covenant House Alaska. A quick tour as show runner for the live show Arctic Entries led him back to radio.

He is an avid runner (though don't ask him what his marathon times are because he doesn't want to talk about them), and loves Graham Greene characters more than he loves most people.

The General Land Office (GLO), which has maintained the Alamo since 2011, just kicked the Daughters of the Republic of Texas (DRT) out of the day-to-day administration of the shrine. The DRT had been involved with the Alamo since 1905.

With the availability of smart phones paired with the ease of recording, we have seen secret and embarrassing recordings of many come to light.

Public officials both nationally and locally have been put on the defensive over comments they thought were private, and the nation has reeled from phone video recordings of police brutality. It seems you can't go anywhere without the possibility of being recorded.

San Antonio has 46 miles of linear greenway trails for walking, jogging, and cycling on. The Howard W. Peak Greenway Trail system is getting bigger and before it does the city council may consider building more public safety aspects into it. Things like call boxes and cameras or perhaps more personnel to monitor and walk the trails are all being considered to ensure that safe trails stay that way.
