Jeff Davis Fired By WFTK-FM
Many may know Jeff Davis as the Fan Cam guy on the Great American Ball Park scoreboard playing the Skyline Shuffle and other games with fans. Or you might know him as Carmon DeLeone's sidekick on WARM 98's recently canceled "Sunday Morning Music Hall." Or for a while the overnight guy on WARM98. Or as the "Road Dog" traffic reporter for old 96.5 The Star, or doing traffic for other stations. I mean, the guy is versatile. And now, unemployed.
Davis has been with WARM98 since 1995. He did overnights, was the morning show producer, and most recently was the program director for sister station WFTK-FM, SupertalkFM96.5. He was fired Friday, four weeks after the format switched from FM talk to 96 Rock.
He's a radio geek and proud of it. (And a great guy, too. Another one bites the dust...) He started at age 16 working for the old WCLU-AM (1320) in Covington after his 7th period class at Elder High School, playing Top 40 songs from 45 rpm records. Nearly every station in town is on his resume: AMs 1160, 1180, 1230, 1320 and FMs 94.1, 94.9, 96.5, 98.5, 105.1, 107.1
He hopes to be back on the Fan Cam again this year at GABP, while he looks for full-time or part-time radio work. I hope I see him around the ball park, he did a good job. I'll let you know where he lands....
