Producer - "The Source"

Paul Flahive is the producer for Texas Public Radio's award winning live, call-in program, "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 and host for weekend programs. 

Paul's love of the audio feature led him east to work for the Third Coast International Audio Festival as an assistant, which was part of Chicago Public Radio at the time. 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 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.

As producer of "The Source," Paul was honored with two 2015 Lone Star Awards from the Houston Press Club, one for Best Talk Program and the other for Best Public Affairs Segment.

Texas Legislators Sen. Donna Campbell and Rep. Lyle Larson are calling on the Alamo Area Master Planning Organization to drop its plan of a tolled expansion U.S. highway 281 north of loop 1604. 

The Children's Garden, the Carriage House, the many nooks and crannies of the San Antonio Botanical Gardens hold generations of memories. With an eight-acre expansion, the largest single expansion in the gardens' history, the site will have even more space for making those memories.

How will the expansion change the look and feel of the gardens?

San Antonio has pedestrian death rate 3 times the safest in the country, which includes New York City. 

Broad streets? Poor city planning? a culture of reckless driving? Where does the blame lie?

San Antonio and Bexar County are seeing property values rise. For the first time in its history, we are seeing the median sales price of a home rise above $200,000. 

Unfortunately, the median household income remains low at $50,502. That is a big gap, and the county is exploring the possibility of helping bridge it.
