Paula Wolfson has been in broadcasting all her life -- literally. She first went before a microphone at age three -- ad libbing commercials on her father's television program in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Her career has taken her from Pittsburgh to Washington and points around the globe - covering stories ranging from the White House to the Olympics...from Capitol Hill to the international effort to combat drug abuse.

A graduate of the Pennsylvania State University and the American University Master's program in Public Affairs Journalism, Paula joined VOA after a stint as a producer at KDKA-TV - the same station where she made her broadcast debut as a toddler.
