Paula Balish 7:00pm To Midnight



Paula Balish credits her father for her career in radio. He gave Paula her first transister radio at age six and continued to buy her radio gifts as she was growing up. Paula’s love for music grew as she did, and following her graduation from Mentor High School in 1980, she jetted down to Florida, enrolled in The Connecticut School of Broadcasting and landed her first job at WNHY, a big band station in Riviera Beach, Florida.

After working at several Florida stations, her ultimate dream came true – returning home to Cleveland to work at her favorite rock station – WNCX. In 1992, a change in Program Directors sent Paula to Youngstown’s WNCD. Three years later, Paula came back to WNCX to host the evening shift. Paula continues to host evenings on WNCX and represents the station at numerous appearances, events and activities in the community.
