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.

John Phillip Santos grew up in San Antonio, went to Churchill High School.  Despite tracing the numerous cities of his journey through life, from San Antonio to to South Bend to Oxford to New Haven to New York City he has never considered himself an urbanite.  In a story that illustrates just how urban he is, Santos notes a calling for the dusty road. 

One night in New York City his longing for the quiet and the dark of those remote ranches of his youth are fulfilled.

Coined the "bathroom ordinance" by its opposition the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance, that expanded protections for 15 different classifications including race, age, and sexual orientation, was easily defeated Tuesday night in a voter referendum. The battle over the ordinance went on for more than a year with those opposed zeroing in on who could use the woman's bathroom. 

What does the defeat say about LGBT rights and will a voter-led referendum be coming to San Antonio?
