Dan McCready

I hail from Milton, Mass. where I attended Catholic Memorial High School in West Roxbury then later Suffolk University. For many years, I worked as an entertainer in film, TV and stage. Eventually, I got bit by the news bug and earned a Masters in Journalism from Northeastern University. During my time at Northeastern, I worked as a Co-op for the Patriot Ledger and the Enterprise writing articles and creating video packages for their websites. I went on to Cape Cod Broadcasting where I anchored the evening news shifts and covered local government. Over my career, I have reported on many events such as the Boston Marathon bombings, Rally to Restore Sanity, and the Hollywood Black Film Festival. I feel very fortunate to be a part of WBSM and interacting with our loyal audience.
