Paul Glickman served as KPCC’s first News Director, from 2000 to 2012. In 2012, he stepped into his new role as a Senior Editor. He is currently in charge of KPCC’s health care, immigration and public safety reporters.
Paul worked for many years as a radio and print reporter in California, Central America, and Washington, D.C. In the mid-1980s he was based in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, an excellent vantage point for covering two neighboring wars: the conflict in El Salvador, where the U.S.-backed government fought Cuban-backed guerrillas, and the war in Nicaragua, where the Cuban-backed government fought U.S.-backed guerrillas.
In the 1990s Glickman was a foreign editor at National Public Radio, overseeing the network's coverage of such historic events as the Rwandan genocide and South Africa's transition from apartheid to democracy.
An L.A. native, Glickman grew up in Gardena and Sherman Oaks. He lives in Sherman Oaks with his wife Janetta and their sons Jonah and Caleb.
