50 Years On Air for Mark Davis


    News 8’s Chief Political Correspondent Mark Davis is marking his 50th year in broadcasting next month.

    It all started at 500 Watt WNBP-AM in Newburyport, Massachusetts. In 1980 he began broadcasting a night time talk show on WTIC-AM in Hartford(where this reporter occasionally filled in as news anchor), then in 1984, he began a transition to WTNH-TV where he has been ever since. He has covered every Connecticut governor since Governor Bill O’Neill and several national political conventions.

    Next month Davis is planning to go back to Newburyport to visit with the current owner of WNBP who is an old friend from their days in Boston radio.
