Broadcast Pioneers member Paul Norton
at the Broadcast Pioneers Luncheon
Wednesday, May 21, 2008

Broadcast Pioneers member Paul Norton has been in radio and television for a half century. He has done it all, both in broadcasting and with Broadcast Pioneers. He's a past president of our organization, an inductee into our "Hall of Fame" and our newsletter's editor for over two decades. He's also been on our Board of Directors (previously called our Board of Governors) for decades.

Paul was on our panel for our "Tribute to Jim O'Brien" on Wednesday, May 21, 2008 and after that luncheon, we sat down and spoke to Paul for 45 minutes about his career in broadcasting. It is part of our "Oral History" series called "Pioneering Visions," produced by Broadcast Pioneers historian Gerry Wilkinson (who was also our president at the time of this interview) and is hosted by member Pat Delsi, a past president of our organization.

Six weeks after this interview, Paul Norton would be dead. In the early hours of Wednesday, August 6, 2008, Paul Norton suffered a massive, life-threatening stroke and passed away early the next morning.

In the summer of 2012, we re-encoded the audio. It is now one file (instead of being divided in half). It is also available in two formats, Real Audio and the Windows Media format.
