Mayor Domenic J. Sarno and Communications Director William Baker wished Paul Tuthill, longtime radio personality and WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief, a happy and healthy retirement. Paul retired in December 2023 after a long and awarding winning distinguished career. Mayor Sarno presented Paul with a proclamation declaring Wednesday, February 21, 2024, as ‘Paul Tuthill Day’ in the City of Springfield. James Paleologopoulos, WAMC’s new Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief, was also in attendance.

Mayor Sarno states, “Bitter-sweet.  There was no one better then Paul Tuthill.  A dedicated, distinguished and award-winning reporter, Paul covered it all, not only in Springfield but across the region too.  Always the gentleman and professional, Paul’s radio voice and fair and honest reporting will be missed.  Thank you, Paul for your dedication and service to the residents of Springfield.  Wishing you continued success and good health on a well-deserved retirement!”

Tuthill grew up in upstate New York in Olean and attended the University of Rochester.  Radio has always been a passion for Paul.  In college he became involved with the local college radio station doing a little bit of everything.  He eventually would go on to work for the United Press International until he took a job at WTAG in Worcester in the early 1980’s.  The rest was history

Paul served as WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief for over 17 years, covering nearly every aspect of the news in the region from politics and government, natural and man-made disasters including the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, and numerous other news stories and events.  Before joining WAMC, Paul was a reporter and anchor at WRKO in Boston and served as the news director for over a decade at WTAG in Worcester.  His reporting, work and professionalism has been recognized, winning numerous awards and accolades including two dozen Associated Press Broadcast Awards and an Edward R. Murrow award

For almost 50 years, Paul has been a trusted source of news and information for the residents of Springfield, Western Massachusetts and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.  Congratulations and happy and health retirement to Paul Tuthill.
