Paul Rado

Rado_Bio_bannerFeel free to feel sorry for Paul Rado. Paul, age 43, was born and raised in Cleveland’s Slavic Village area of town at St Alexis Hospital, which was later renamed St Michael’s Hospital, which was later closed and torn down to make way for a cyclorama track or whatever the heck those bicycle race tracks are called!


He started playing sports at the age of seven when he joined a youth baseball league at Morgana Park, which was recently closed and torn down to make way for a football stadium for Cleveland Central Catholic.


In 1979, just as court ordered busing was instituted in the Cleveland Public Schools, Paul started attending Myron T. Herrick Junior High School. He actually was part of the last Herrick 9th grade class because the school was closed and torn down to make way for an assisted living home.


Paul then attended Cleveland South High School where he was a four-letter athlete and an all league selection in both baseball and football. Paul was nominated for the South Hall of Fame, but the selection process was canceled because Cleveland South High School recently closed and is awaiting being torn down as soon as someone figures out what to put in its place.


Paul started his radio broadcasting career on a part-time basis by impersonating former Browns owner Art Modell. Modell had announced the team’s move to Baltimore to become the Ravens and Paul capitalized by sounding like the most hated man in Cleveland. Paul supplemented his income by working as a vendor during the 1994 season but lost the job when Cleveland Municipal Stadium was torn down to make way for the new Cleveland Browns Stadium.


Paul spent twelve years working on WTAM 1100AM and the Mike Trivisonno show, the #1 rated afternoon radio show in Cleveland. He also worked with the Cleveland Browns Radio Network From 1999 to 2009 as the spotter for Jim Donovan and Doug Deiken and the radio broadcast team. Not only did he have to watch all that terrible football, he had to watch it with binoculars!


Paul also hosted Browns post game shows and general topic talk shows on WTAM for several years.


Come to think of it, the only thing that keeps you from feeling sorry for Paul is the fact that in 2005 he married his high school sweetheart, Darlene. They live in Garfield Heights and raise her glamorous daughter Tori.


Then again, you can feel sorry for him about that too because he doesn’t know that she’s way too hot for him.
