For Paula Wolfson, broadcasting has always been a family affair.
She began her on-air career at the ripe old age of 3 at KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh. Her
dad had a popular children's show, and one day Paula walked on the set without
warning and began to adlib a commercial.
Since then, her work in radio and television has taken her to the White House,
Capitol Hill and around the world.
She covered the Bush (both 41 and 43) and early Obama administrations for the Voice
of America, reporting on foreign policy and politics for VOA's international
audience. Paula also became one of the first VOA correspondents to venture into
television, and launched VOA's first political video blog during the 2008
After years on the road, she opted for a big career change in 2010. She joined
WTOP, eventually settling into a new beat focusing on health and fitness. Her
assignments have included a month long series on women's heart health, coverage of
the International AIDs conference, and a blog chronicling her adventures (and
misadventures) as she trained for her first marathon.
