Former 92.9 Perth breakfast team member Paul Redman passed away this morning
He was part of Perth’s high-rating Morning Crew with Gary Shannon, Jane Marwick and Bernie Brittain in the 1990s and then moved into sales.
Gary Shannon told 6PR’s Simon Beaumont his former colleague and best mate will be remembered as a “guy with a huge heart” who was “loved by so many.”
He left the Perth media scene in 2016 after a serious health scare, and settled in WA’s South West five years ago, where he focused on his health and spent time with his new girlfriend and two children.
In 2016 Perth Now interviewed him about how he returned to health.
He now has a new lease on life thanks to a move to the WA coastal town of Augusta and his girlfriend of two months, natural therapist Neesha Hanna.
“I’ve only improved significantly since Neesha’s been in my life giving me natural therapies like kinesiology and essential oil therapy,” he said. “It’s the ultimate love story for me.”
Redman, 55, was part of the high-rating 1990s PMFM Morning Crew for 10 years alongside Gary Shannon, who he said was “monumental in my resurrection”. Redman left his high-pressure sales job, following a mental and physical breakdown.
He was told he had a rare form of thyroid cancer in 2008 and underwent triple heart bypass surgery in 2010 to replace six arteries.
Last year he was diagnosed with severe stomach cancer and told he would not make it out of hospital alive.
Unable to walk, talk or eat, his weight plummeted from 94kg-62kg in six weeks.
Redman said moving to Augusta two years ago saved his life.
