Paul D. McKay

Wheeling native and Wheeling Park High School graduate, Paul D. McKay is incredibly familiar with the town of West Liberty and Ohio County, which is where he now seeks higher education.

Since he was a child, Paul has had a love for all thing’s cinema, which he credits for his interest in pursuing a career behind the camera. Some of his favorite movies include (in no particular order) In Bruges, Big Fish, Annihilation, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Because of this lifelong appreciation of cinema, he aspires to use his degree in Digital Media Design to film short movies and ads for products he uses.

When not watching or making movies, Paul loves to fish, which he has had since he was just a child.  Nowadays, if he isn’t behind a computer monitor, he can be found in a creek somewhere within his home state of West Virginia. Part of his drive is challenging himself to learn new skills, and most recently he has challenged himself to become a much better and more skilled fly fisherman, so that he may catch his favorite fish (and the state fish of West Virginia), the Brook Trout.              

When he is in the car Paul listens to a lot of news radio, like the BBC and NPR, on his drive home from work.  He believes news outlets such as these are some of the best ways to learn about current events around the world. College radio is Paul’s key to understanding what life for broadcasters is like behind the microphone.  He says that his appreciation for radio will only grow once he sees what it’s like behind the console at WGLZ.
