Kenny O'Boyle is a "Sports Geek." Not only that, he's wanted to be a sportscaster since he was a young boy.
Since Kenny enrolled at Fairleigh Dickinson University in 2007, he's been involved in the broadcasting and announcing of various athletic events for both FDU campuses to this day. He graduated with his BA in Communications in 2010 and a MA in Professional Communications/Media Studies in 2011.
He is currently the public address "Voice" of the FDU-Florham Devils Football and Men's/Women's Basketball teams, he was a graduate assistance for FDU Knights Athletic Department, and has been teaching Sportcasting at FDU since the Fall of 2011.
Most recently Kenny was named WFDU Sports Director in addition to his many other titles at the station and is now the Co-Host/Producer/Engineer/"Assistant Coach" to Greg Herenda on Sunday Mornings.

I hope you and your loved ones are safe, healthy and managing okay during these unprecedented times.
I wanted to give you all an update, but unfortunately there is not much to update you on. The question I get more than any other from our staff and listeners is, “When will WFDU be able to resume normal, live programming?” Unfortunately, I do not have an answer to this question. Logically, I would have to assume that WFDU Staff will not be allowed back inside the station until the government stay at home restrictions are lifted. Who knows when that will be? Even when those restrictions are lifted, it’s still ultimately up to the university.
What can we do and what are we doing?
We are now accepting new material and recordings of past shows for our programs on HD2 and will begin airing those ASAP
I speak on behalf of the entire staff and I’m sure many of you too when I say we all can’t wait to return to normal. We all miss doing our shows and most of all, interacting with you! Please be patient. We all have to be.
I very much appreciate all of the listeners that have reached out via email, phone or Facebook. Overwhelmingly, the messages are positive and appreciative that WFDU is still on the air even in this limited capacity. It warms my heart to hear that WFDU can be a source of comfort during all of this.
If you would like to reach out with any comments, questions or concerns, please do.
