Paul Phillips lives in Hays, Kansas and is a Professor of Geography at Fort Hays State University. Paul has had a love for radio since his childhood days, when he would listen to far away and exotic places on a 1940’s ZENITH floor model Short Wave Tube Radio. Today he and his wife Pat keeps “in touch with the world” by listening to HPPR and actually traveling to those far away and exotic places.
Paul’s professional interests include all aspects of cultural geography, but he is especially fond of finding, documenting, and eating in those small cafes that provide a sense of place for the small communities that dot the High Plains. If you know of one of these hidden jewels in our service area, drop him an e-mail.
Paul is active in many civic activities, including the Hays Lions Club, the Hays City Planning Commission, the Humane Society of the High Plains, and High Plains Public Radio. For Paul HPPR represents more than a radio station. It truly is a significant voice for the High Plains community, and he is proud to represent and serve the interest of this community.
