It is a pleasure to welcome radio personality Dave O to The Jake’s Take with Jacob Elyachar Podcast

Dave O began his radio career in his hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska, where he worked on the weekend overnight shift on the number one radio station KFRX at 16 years old. He continued to work on air throughout college before beginning his full-time radio career in the Top 30 market of Charlotte, North Carolina, where he worked for two years. Next, he moved to Jacksonville, Florida, in 2006 before landing his dream job in Kansas City radio, where he hosts the weekday afternoons on Mix 93.3, Kansas City’s Number One Hit Music Station, from 3 to 7 PM.

Over his career, he interviewed many celebrities, from recording artists Lady Gaga and Selena Gomez to actors Adam Scott and Rob Corddry. He previously hosted Round Trip with Dave O. This two-hour trip to the 1990s included songs from the decade and welcomed several of the decade’s top recording artists. Barenaked Ladies, C&C Music Factory, Jennifer Lopez, Lisa Loeb, and Third Eye Blind are several recording artists that visited the show until it ended in 2021. 

In addition to music, he also loves talking about Kansas City sports. He launched Clubhouse Conversation, where he spoke with former Kansas City Royals players and staff members. He recently launched the KC Press Box with Dave O & Killian White. The show discusses sports headlines and teaches listeners how to make cash with sports investing! 

I interviewed Dave O in February 2014 with his former Mix 93.3 colleague Nathan Graham. We reunited for a podcast interview for the first time in nine years. In this edition of The Jake’s Take with Jacob Elyachar Podcast, he spoke about the current state of radio and how Mix 93.3 welcomed several rising stars, including Justin Bieber, Lizzo, and Meghan Trainor. He also revealed his most memorable interviews and the state of Kansas City sports.
