Paul Page

Paul’s broadcasting career started at WIBC in the late 1960s. He was the lead announcer for CART on NBC from 1979-1987, and then moved to ABC/ESPN‘s coverage of the Indianapolis 500, CART and the IRL from 1988 to 2004. From 2006 to 2012, he was the lead announcer for the NHRA on ESPN2

Paul was born in Evansville, Indiana, but grew up as an “army brat,” moving several times, spending time in Stuttgart, Germany, Fort Belvoir, and Fort Sheridan.  Page went to twelve different schools from elementary to high school, and he graduated high school in Highland Park, Illinois. He is married to fellow broadcaster Sally Larvick. He studied at the University of Tulsa. He served six years in the U.S. Army. Paul’s son Brian is a member of Bryan Herta Autosport.

Paul’s broadcasting career began at WAIV and WATI, after which he moved to WIBC in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1968, where he was mentored by Sid Collins. On December 1, 1977, while doing a helicopter traffic report, Page was nearly killed in an accident, as the helicopter he was riding aboard crashed near Speedway Senior High School in Speedway, Indiana. Page suffered a compound fracture of his ankle, but soon returned to his duties.

Page’s great-uncle was Harry Geisel, a Major League Baseball AL umpire. Page first attended the Indianapolis 500 in 1960
