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 and at-risk youth and with 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 it), and loves Graham Greene characters more than he loves most people.
