Morning Anchor at WPBF in West Palm Beach/Father/Husband/Sports Fan/Political Junkie
Introduction

Paul LaGrone is the weekday morning anchor alongside Felicia Rodriguez on WPBF 25 News Mornings (4:30-7:00 a.m.) and WPBF 25 News at Noon. He's a native Floridian, born and raised in the Tampa Bay area.

Paul has won three Associated Press awards recognizing his writing and investigative work. In 2007, Paul won a Regional Edward R. Murrow award for an investigation that uncovered child pornography on charity-donated computers. In 2004, Paul was nominated for an Emmy for “Best Spot News Coverage” in a case where he and his photographer helped find a missing boy.

Paul's investigative reports have covered a wide range of topics, from exposing credit repair scams to simulating hypothermia in the Gulf of Mexico.

So far, Paul's career has taken him to newsrooms in North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida. In two separate tenures, he spent a total of seven years anchoring and reporting at WBBH in Fort Myers. Paul also spent three years reporting at WRAL-TV in Raleigh, N.C., and he started his career at WFXB in Myrtle Beach, S.C., where he worked as a reporter, photographer and editor.

In 2003, Paul spent a month in Iraq and Kuwait, covering the war alongside the 82nd Airborne Division. He spent two weeks in the middle of the Sunni Triangle where hostilities against U.S. troops were just starting to intensify. He took viewers inside one of Saddam Hussein's palaces and ventured alongside soldiers as they uncovered an underground bunker full of Iraqi intelligence.

Paul graduated from the University of Florida. He's excited to be living in South Florida, where he has close family and friends. Paul and his wife, Katie, are the very proud parents of one very energetic boy, Jacob.
