Paul Livengood is a digital sports journalist and digital assignment desk editor at KVUE in Austin, Texas, specializing in general assignment reporting, sports reporting, social media insights and web analytics.
He was born an Army brat in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, and moved to numerous places around the United States (i.e. Alaska, Washington, etc.) before finding roots in Texas. His family moved to Fort Hood when he was in fifth grade and stayed in the Fort Hood/Killeen area until he graduated high school from Harker Heights High School.
He originally attended Central Texas College pursing a math degree to be a math teacher and football coach, but transferred to Texas State University and changed his major to Electronic Media in the university's Mass Communications department. He graduated from Texas State University with a major in Electronic Media and a minor in Sports Psychology. While attending Texas State, he wrote for the university's school publication, the University Star, and also played lacrosse for the Bobcats.
After graduating from Texas State, he began his professional journalism career writing sports articles part-time for a small town newspaper in Liberty Hill: The Liberty Hill Independent. Shortly after, he started working full-time for KVUE sister station KCEN in Temple, Texas as a digital producer. He worked at KCEN for a year and transferred to KVUE as a digital producer in February 2018.
In August 2018, Paul moved to a new, evolving role at KVUE as the digital assignment desk editor.
In his free time, Paul enjoys walking/playing fetch with his black lab, Colt, watching his favorite TV shows on the weekdays (way too many to list them all, sorry!) and sporting events on the weekends.
