Paul Kurtz is a Philadelphia native who has been working as a reporter and anchor for KYW Newsradio since 1984.
Kurtz was born and raised in Philadelphia. He attended Roxborough High School and Temple University, where he majored in journalism.
His first job was at WBCB in Levittown, Pa. At age 24, Kurtz was morning drive anchor and reporter at WASH-FM in Washington, DC. He received awards for his reporting from the AP and UPI during his three years there.
Paul came back to Philadelphia in 1984 with stops at WIP and WPEN before settling at KYW in 1985. He’s won numerous awards here, most recently the Society of Professional Journalists’ first place award for Best Newscast and, along with Beth Trapani, a prestigious Edward R. Murrow National award for reporting.
Kurtz and his wife Kim Glovas — who also works at KYW — have four boys and live in Bucks County. Kurtz says he loves his job and there’s nothing he’d rather do, except perhaps playing ball with his kids.
