Name Tall Paul Fredricks
About Nearly twenty-two years with CBS Radio, Seattle. ALL On-Air with 94.1 KMPS FM and most recently including the PD/Ops Manager for AM Talker KPTK.

While Tall Paul led KPTK, he maintained his on-air persona as Tall Paul on Seattle's heritage country music station, 94.1 KMPS, named Country Music Associations Country Station of the Year a few years back.

The last four years with CBS Seattle and while on-air with KMPS, Tall Paul was Program Director and Operations Manager for Seattles Progressive Talk, AM-1090, KPTK, building it from scratch after a format change in October 2004 (from Classic Country). With scant resources and guerilla marketing, he established KPTK as a strong competitor in AM Talk. Top-rated syndicated talk stars and creative and timely imaging produced a salable, listenable on-air product. Time Spent Listening to KPTK is consistently at or near the top of all Seattle radio stations.

At CBS Seattle, Tall Paul established himself as a familiar Northwest personality and recognizable voice and continues to enjoy great working relationships with numerous ad agencies and production companies.
