At age sixteen Paul Holmes began working at GMV-6-TV in Shepparton, Victoria where he worked his way from the dispatch department to Program Switcher/Director. At eighteen he moved to Melbourne to stage manage The Glitter Sisters, a musical comedy act at the Chevron Hotel. For the next few years, Paul worked in Melbourne’s theatre scene both on and off the stage, while also writing television commercials, playing in bands and making student art films.

In 1979 Paul Holmes began what would become a 20 year plus career in radio, when he began working as an announcer at 3CV Bendigo, Victoria. Since then a number of Paul’s shows have rated No 1 including drive time in Melbourne (3XY) and Sydney (2SM), evenings at 2MMM Sydney and breakfast on the Gold Coast (SeaFM).
