Haney Bio

Paul P. Haney

Paul Haney, a longtime NASA public affairs officer and voice of the Gemini and Apollo programs, was a native of Akron, Ohio. Haney was a news reporter for the Associated Press, the Erie Times, and the Washington Evening Star before joining NASA at the agency's inception in 1958.

Haney pioneered a system of reporting NASA events as they happened, providing real-time information to the public and news media covering NASA's space missions. He performed commentary for the Gemini and early Apollo flights. Haney became Chief of Public Affairs at the Manned Spacecraft Center, later renamed the Johnson Space Center in Houston. He left NASA in 1969.

Paul Haney passed away in New Mexico in 2009 at the age of 80. “Paul was a true professional and one of the best in the business,” said former NASA colleague Jack King, the voice of Apollo 11 launch. “He was a tremendous writer, an innovator and one of the good guys. We'll miss him.”
