Calgary, AB – (May 18, 2021) RTDNA Canada is pleased to recognize Paul Dunphy who has distinguished himself through outstanding service and continued excellence during the course of his career in journalism and news broadcasting.
RTDNA President Fiona Conway said, “Congratulations Paul on being recognized by your colleagues! Your audience has come to rely on your forecasting as well as your volunteer contributions to your community.”
Paul Dunphy has been a broadcaster for 47 years. He started in radio in 1974 and had the pleasure of working with broadcasting legend Ed Whalen when he first arrived in Calgary to work at a local radio station. Whalen became a mentor and friend to Paul in his early years as a broadcaster.
Paul has been forecasting and presenting the weather at Global Calgary for 36 years. Satellite and radar imagery did not exist when Paul first started, but he continues to evolve as does the technology in the industry. He is one of Calgary’s most respected and trusted weather anchors and puts the audience first each day because he genuinely cares and is dedicated to honest reporting.
