Ever since Paul entered college at The University of Akron, he knew that he wanted to start a career in radio. Since he was young he has always been outgoing, using a personality that was contagious, placing a positive spin on nearly every situation there was. After Paul left music school in 2010, he devoted himself full-time to radio, where he remained since.
Paul Laux has been on-air personality with various radio stations under the name “Chops” since 2009 – the first being his college radio station, WZIP 88.1 FM in Akron, Ohio. He remained here for over three years until he left The University of Akron in late 2012.
His first taste in commercial radio came in May of 2011, when he interned as a phone screener and producer for the MWL show out of Cleveland on 98.5 WNCX where he also worked on the promotions team. During this time, his on-air name changed to “Yoder,” a name given to him by the host of the show. However after he left, the name was quickly dropped, and he again began using the name “Chops.”
In 2014, after answering a call for a night show host, Paul joined the staff on WQMX in Akron where he was a weekend host and fill-in on nights.
After two years, Paul left WQMX to become the producer for The Jeremiah and Jeff Show on Cleveland’s Q104. However after a year and a half, Paul decided to return to the airwaves as on-air talent.
In May of 2018, Paul returned to his home in Akron, and once again can be heard on WONE 97.5.
