Paula began her radio career in the early 2000s as a sales assistant at Radio Wave. Over the three decades at the station, she went on to lead Radio Wave until its closure in 2020.
Fast forward 3 years and Paula decided to set up her own radio station on the newly established DAB multiplex for Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde. Coastal Radio launched on the 26th September 2022, helping Paula achieve her dream of owning her own radio station.
