Morning MAGIC’s David O’Leary is a Boston native who has been with the station since 2004. Warm and relatable, David’s always ready with a quick laugh as he wakes you up every weekday morning. You’ve seen and heard David on Boston radio and television for over 30 years. He is also a guy who moves pretty fast…when he’s not on the air, David can sometimes be found in the air. He’s a private pilot who flies his own plane out of Minuteman Airfield in Stow, MA. You might also find David in the dojang. He has practiced taekwondo since 1999 and currently holds a 4th degree black belt, don’t mess with David! Theatre, fitness, aviation and cooking are all areas of interest for David. He spent two years assisting in the kitchen of a Boston area pastry chef honing his skills as a baker!
