Paul Mueller, Reporter
Paul Mueller is a general assignment reporter based out of Bay News 9’s Pinellas County newsroom. He typically starts his workday at 3 p.m. and brings you the latest breaking news as it happens through midnight.
With more than 20 years of successful broadcast experience, Paul has proven himself to be a strong and dynamic on-air personality. His extensive journalistic experience and knowledge have allowed him to move seamlessly between roles as anchor and reporter, as well as a familiar face in the communities he has served.
Paul is highly proficient in all aspects of social media and emerging social platforms. More importantly, his work in community service has distinguished him as a person with whom people can easily relate.
Paul's professional life has been shaped by his vast network of family, friends, and colleagues. At each of the stations he has worked, he has evolved as an anchor and reporter thanks largely due to the relationships he has developed with his fellow anchor, reporters and management.
In addition, Paul's professional development has been most influenced by the people whose stories he's been allowed to share with his viewers.
Although Paul's professional development has been influenced by all of the stories he's reported, several events that he's covered have significantly influenced his growth. These include covering both Republican (2012) and Democratic (2004) conventions, a deadly fire at a Rhode Island nightclub which killed 100 people (2003), and his half-hour expose on adolescent mental health issues (2006.)
Even though Paul was born in New York, his family moved to Largo back in the mid 1980s. He went to St. Patrick’s School in Largo and then on to St. Paul’s School in Clearwater.
Paul moved back to the Tampa Bay area in 2011.
When Paul’s not at work, he’s an avid yogi, loves working out, dabbles in still photography, and tries to pay it forward one day at a time.
Paul can be seen nightly on Your Evening News at 10 and 11 and often times at 5 and 6.
