As a journalist with a track record of covering a heady blend of stories, David has proven his ability to engage with any subject on his own terms – be he anchor or studio guest.
Well, you have to concede, there are quite a few worlds to be found between waxing lyrical on the finer points of repatriating looted antiquity, while delving into the aesthetics of Greek artefacts… and exploring the idiosyncrasies of Charles Manson. But that’s just radio, and that’s just David.
His broadcasting professionalism has been recognised by the Phonographic Performance Ireland (PPI) National Radio Awards – nominating him for his contribution to current affairs in 2007. And his documentary work has been regarded internationally, with a shortlisting at the Celtic Media Awards, 2012.
David has gone on since to secure funding from the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland to produce documentary work. Most recently, he framed the life and times of Desmond O’Grady – the ‘great outsider’ of Irish poetry, and peer of Nobel-winner Seamus Heaney.
At the Post House, there is always something in the pipeline. So keep an ear out.
