Paul Flahive

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.

The new chief looks a lot like the old chief, as William McManus announced he would be coming back as SAPD Chief, a mere 9 months after retiring and taking a job with CPS Energy.

We take the community's pulse on their new chief.

Also on the program we talk about the University Interscholastic League hearing surrounding John Jay High School, which proved to be a bit of a snoozefest. 

If you were young and poor in the late 60s, you were probably going to war. Vietnam drafted hundreds of thousands of men into its ranks over the course of its 10 years, and many were Mexican-American. 

City of San Antonio

Late last year, San Antonio City Council heard an ambitious plan that would have added millions in tax revenue, tens of thousands of residents,  and 66 square miles to the city by annexing five surrounding areas. It would have been the largest addition in 20 years.

Last night, the GOP presidential field debated their views on many issues, but again and again the idea of constitutional changes came up.

Birthright citizenship, increasing state rights, and reigning in the Judicial and Executive branches all were focal points of the conservative debates. 

What would it take to change the constitution? What would you change?


25 years ago H.G. "Buzz" Bissinger published the book "Friday Night Lights." 

He had quit his newspaper job at 34-years old to write a nonfiction novel about a small town football team in a backwater part of Texas. At the time he had no concept of what it would mean to his life and the lives of the people he wrote about. 

What does the story mean now?

Buzz Bissinger will be at the H-E-B on Potranco Road in San Antonio at 6pm Thursday as part of his book tour celebrating 25 years of "Friday Night Lights."
