Nancy Quill likes to think of herself as your at-work companion. Her natural style helps her build a true rapport with her listeners. When MAGIC 106.7 went on the air in January 1982, the very first "hello" was from Nancy Quill. Now, almost 30 years later, more than a million people hear Nancy every week. She has the longest-running show of any woman on the radio in any top-ten market in America. Nancy has also won a Boston Achievement In Radio award, and has been a co-host for the Boston Common holiday tree lighting.

A graduate of the University of Lowell with a degree in music education, Nancy is a gifted singer, songwriter, pianist and poet. She has starred in MAGIC's TV commercial, and that MAGIC WHISPER you hear between songs is Nancy's. Her voiceover work can be heard across the country.

Nancy grew up in a radio family. The daughter of Doris Quill and the late Joe Quill, former owner and general manager of WRLM in Taunton, Nancy has stayed true to her father’s words of wisdom: “Always be yourself on the radio.” In memory of her father, Nancy works tirelessly to raise money and awareness as a member of the Advisory Board of the Alzheimer’s Association of Massachusetts and serves as radio spokesperson for this market.
