Paul Rasmussen

With a shift that starts at 3 a.m., Paul wakes up when night owls are going to sleep. He thinks it may be in his genes since his Grandpa Rasmussen got up at about the same time to open the family bakery. “It’s worth the effort when listeners tell me they tune in for our first newscast at 5 a.m. It’s motivating to know so many Pittsburghers turn to KDKA to find out what’s happening first thing in the morning.”

Paul joined the KDKA Morning news with Larry Richert and John Shumway in January 2012. “Being part of a program with the heritage, tradition and success of the Morning News is an honor. Who wouldn’t want to follow in the footsteps of news anchors like Dave James and Bob Kopler?”

Prior to the Morning News, Paul co-anchored the KDKA Afternoon News with Rose Ryan-Douglas starting in December 2006. He’s the winner of multiple Best Newscast awards here in Pittsburgh and during stints at WWL New Orleans, LA and WOKV and WQIK Jacksonville, FL.

He’s a native of Great Falls, Montana, and lives in the West Hills. Paul’s a Dachshund fan, likes to golf badly and cheers for the Steelers, Pirates and Penguins.
