Since the day Paul delivered a fridge to Sydney's Nova969 resulting in him landing his first job in the entertainment industry, he has established himself as a professional radio presenter, TV host, voice artist, stand-up comedian, MC and musician.

After climbing the ranks of radio station promotions, Paul became an on-air presenter under the nickname 'Fridgy'.  Five years later and he had presented every radio shift across the day (including being the regular breakfast fill-in) on three different Nova Network stations in Sydney, Adelaide and Perth.

While hosting 'drive' in Perth, Paul made his first TV appearance on the Perth Telethon panel live on Channel 7.  Paul produced and presented a national radio show for the Nova network 'The P-Plate Debate'. He got his second taste of national radio after spending fifteen months at Australia's other primary broadcaster, Austereo (where he hosted shows on 2DayFM and Triple M), during which time he also hosted the famous 'National Hot 30 Countdown'.

Just wanted to say a big thank you for your efforts today. We all thought you did a great job, adn had the right tone and personality to make the people (who did come!) feel at ease. You did a great job representing The Heralds, and your professional manner was much appreciated. The weather was against us, but the general concensus was that the format is on target, and something we will look to do again in the near future. We are going to have a debrief later next week and I'll share with you what we plan to do from there. I'll be in touch soon.
