Paul Cook is the traffic anchor for Today in St. Louis on 5 On Your Side in St. Louis, Missouri.

A native of St. Louis, Paul is a media veteran in his hometown. He grew up in South County near Grant’s Farm (before you ask, the answer is Lindbergh High School), and has spent most of the last several decades working in local radio.

Paul earned a degree in speech communication with a minor in pre-law from Eastern Illinois University. From 2001-2020, he hosted an afternoon drive show on Y98 FM. He was the traffic anchor at CBS affiliate KMOV from 2005-2010 and hosted a Sunday evening show on KMOX from 2012-2014.

Obsessed with saving time himself, Paul enjoys helping connect people with information and saving them time in the morning by helping them avoid long traffic delays.

He says his most memorable moment to date has been working backstage at the Grammy Awards. Paul was able to attend a half dozen ceremonies, and interview lots of celebrities, including Bryan Cranston, Evander Holyfield, and Kelly Clarkson.
