Paul Blume

News runs in Paul Blume’s blood; his parents owned a community newspaper in his hometown of Lexington, MA.  Paul got his start working for Mom and Dad reporting on high school sports. Here at FOX 9, Paul does a great job covering big stories for all our evening newscasts…but his love of sports means we can count on him to pinch-hit in that Department too. And we can count on him to brighten the day around the newsroom when he brings his adorable daughter Bea in to visit; go to his Facebook page for pictures. “Baby B”, as we call her, is just a toddler now…but maybe we’ll see the next generation of Blume’s on FOX 9 in a few decades or so!
