Paul Butler joined Wicomico County Public Schools as Director of Communications in July of 2017 after a 24-career as a Television Anchor/Reporter. He is a graduate of Wicomico High School, and earned a Bacherlor's Degree in Communication Arts from Salisbury State College. He started his broadcasting career right out of high school through an internship at local radio station 1470 AM WJDY in Salisbury. In 1984 he made the move to the night time airwaves of OC-104 Radio (Berlin/Ocean City) where he hosted the Number One rated Quiet Storm show for many years. In 2006, Butler landed his dream radio job when he was hired by Hall of Fame Radio Personality, Donnie Simpson, as a filli-in and weekend disc jockey at the highly rated 93 WKYS in Washington, D.C.
Paul began his television career as a news reporter for his hometown station WBOC TV16 in 1994. A year later he began what he calls his "Tour of the South", as he and the family moved to Mobile, Alabama to work for WPMI. In 1997 he began a two-year stint as Sports Director at KTBS in Shreveport, La. and six year at WCCB in Charlotte, NC. He returned with his wife and three children to Salisbury in 2005, and took over the sports Director position where it all started, at WBOC.
Paul loves to play almost all sports, especially tennis and basketball. In fact, for five years he operated the Delmarva Basketball Academy, helping youth learn, love and thrive in life through the game of basketball. With all of his children now adults, Paul and his wife Valerie are spare-time entreprenuers as owner of a successful home-based business. Butler says "the money isn't what it's about; it's seeing others succeed and change their lives." Paul and Valerie are currently the proud grandparents to two amazing young boys.
