Before finishing university, Paul started working for Downtown Radio/Cool FM as a holiday relief newsreader and occasional reporter in 1997, becoming full-time by 1998 when he graduated from Bournemouth University.
In May 2000, he joined BBC Northern Ireland as a television continuity announcer, also directing some television news bulletins and election outside broadcasts.
In 2009, Paul joined the BBC NI trails department; where he currently produces and directs TV promotions. He returned to full-time continuity announcing for a few months during Digital Switchover, and again for a year from 2017 to 2018.
He can still be heard covering a couple of live TV continuity announcing shifts per month, and remains a familiar voice on local TV and radio promotions.
