Reporter Jeff Paul joined the CBS 11 News team in 2014. Born and raised in the desert of Phoenix, Arizona, Jeff is happy to call Texas his home.

He attended Arizona State University and earned a bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism through the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

Jeff made the journey to the Lone Star State after spending three years at WPTV-TV, the NBC affiliate in West Palm Beach, Fl, where he worked quickly to become the lead nightside reporter. While in South Florida, Jeff reported on major storms including Hurricane Isaac, Hurricane Sandy and several tropical cyclones. He also extensively covered the high-profile DUI manslaughter case involving polo mogul and millionaire John Goodman and was sent to witness the execution of serial killer David Alan Gore. In addition, Jeff traveled to the Everglades National Park to cover the massive beaching of dozens of pilot whales.

Before his time in the Sunshine State, Jeff reported for KEZI-TV in Eugene, Oregon. While in the Pacific Northwest, Jeff reported on several wildfires and floods, the University of Oregon Ducks college football National Championship run and the tsunami evacuation of the Oregon coast during the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

When not at work, Jeff enjoys running, collecting vinyl records, riding his motorcycle, watching all kinds of sports, playing drums, and whipping up new food recipes he’s attempting to conquer.
