Davis is pursuing the career he knew he wanted back in middle school—when he was listening to the Tampa Bay Rays and DeWayne Statts, who called the games on the Tampa Bay Rays TV network. That was in his native St. Petersburg, Florida.  He found himself calling the games along with DeWayne—and knew that someday he wanted to go into sports broadcasting.

Davis hosts SportsTrend 9:30-10am every Saturday morning, and delivers A Quick Shot of Sports at :50 every hour on The Pensacola Morning News with Andrew McKay—a show he also produces.

Back to middle school:  Davis’ first experience was in 7th grade when he was part of the team who produced closed-circuit radio shows.  Then, as a senior now at Gulf Breeze High School, he joined the daily school news production team, “iTV”, and played varsity baseball.  Next—college.  And Davis chose UWF.

At UWF, he began studying Broadcast Journalism, secured an internship at NewsRadio1620 ▪FM92.3, and advanced to producer for The Pensacola Morning News.  He is also currently acting as Programming Coordinator for the station.

Aside from sports, Davis has a love of service and being active in the community.

In high school, he was active in Key Club where he was for a time, Lieutenant Governor for Florida District 1A Key Club, then President of the Gulf Breeze Chapter.  At UWF, Davis became a brother of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity, holding positions as high as Vice President. He was also a Peer Educator. Named Peer Educator of the Year for 2016-2017, he has also been inducted into the UWF Peer Educator Hall of Fame. Davis was also one of five students in the Spring of 2018 at UWF to be awarded a Cannon Citation for his service to the University. 

A golfer (not a very good one) who also loves road trips and likes to spend time volunteering, Davis credits NewsRadio1620 ▪ FM92.3 with the opportunities that lay the foundation for a life-long career.
