(PRESS RELEASE)_(North Palm Beach, FL – February 9, 2023) Dick Robinson, Founder of Legends 100.3FM, today announced the radio station’s addition of legendary broadcaster Paul Cavenaugh, who will be joining the station for morning-drive and afternoon-drive traffic reports starting Monday, February 13.
“Whether it is during Legends Mornings with Angela and Steve from 6 am to 9 am, or during Afternoons with Taylor between 4 pm and 6 pm, Paul will keep our listeners fully informed about road-closings, major vehicle tie-ups, and other behind-the-wheel nuisances that plague—and occasionally even endanger—drivers on I-95 and other major traffic thoroughfares in our South Florida broadcasting area,” says Robinson.
Born and raised in New York, Cavenaugh’s passion for broadcasting began while in high school and intensified when he landed a weekend gig at Buffalo's legendary WKBW Radio. Because he loved boats and hated the harsh Buffalo winters, Canenaugh moved to Florida and joined West Palm's WJNO radio as the afternoon DJ in December 1976, followed by stops as a news anchor at Miami's WGBS and Studio 107. In 1984, he returned to WJNO and WRMF as Palm Beach County's first airborne traffic reporter—a gig that lasted almost 25 years.
In spite of surviving a serious helicopter crash in 1988, Cavenaugh continued his "Yellowcopter" traffic updates until being sidelined by another crash in 2008. This prompted him to retire aboard his boat PIZZAZ and spend several summers in the Bahamas and the Keys, and in 2017 he did Half-a-Loop, a 45-day boat trip from Chicago through the Great Lakes and back down to South Florida. He finally moved ashore in 2021.
“I am delighted to be joining such remarkable talents as Angela Manfredi and Steve Ketelaar in the mornings and Taylor Morgan every afternoon, where I promise to keep our Legends listeners fully informed so they can safely and conveniently avoid any irritating, time-delaying traffic obstacles,” says Cavenaugh.
