Dear ICRT Listeners:

It is with a heavy heart that we must inform you of the passing of our very own Paul Meador. Papa Paul was a magnificent person who dedicated himself to a lifelong career in radio.

Paul had been with ICRT for over 15 years. He loved radio, rock-and-roll and, most of all, he loved you, his listeners.

Paul started with ICRT when we were up on Yangmingshan in the early 90’s as an evening newscaster. He could easily put together and read an hour-long newscast, as well as many other casts in between. Paul was unstoppable, eventually becoming the Newsroom Manager and then Programming Manager. Paul was professional and hard working. He could work all day, then at the drop of a hat, come back in to cover the shift of a sick DJ. Never once did he complain.

Around 2000, Papa Paul went back to the States to work in print and radio journalism, but only temporarily. He could not be kept away from the country he loved so dearly – Taiwan.

In 2011, Paul was asked to return to ICRT as Programming Manager, once again, and he jumped at the opportunity. He was with us all the way until he passed away this week.

Paul had the heart of a lion, and he was an absolute joy to work with. He kept the workplace fun and full of laughter. However, we would be remiss to say that those of you who grew up listening to him won’t miss him as much as we do – After all, Paul saved all of his best jokes and material for when he was in the studio. Whether you’ve tuned into his newscasts, The Morning Show with Papa Paul or Rock of Ages, please join us in honoring the memory of Paul George Meador, one of the longest-lived juggernauts to ever grace Taiwan’s airwaves.

Paul was born in Illinois, and is survived by his mother, two sisters, a brother, his wife, and 3 daughters, as well as two granddaughters.


我們最好、最愛笑的Papa Paul永遠離開了,



少了Papa Paul的我們,感到難過和寂寞,
