Well Davis started out at Houston's KTRK 13 in the 70s and then worked at WFAA 8 in Dallas. More from TVNewsCheck:
Davis started his broadcasting career in 1977 as a photographer at KTRK, the ABC-owned station in Houston. He was subsequently promoted to a reporter and producer. In 1982, he moved to WFAA Dallas as producer of the 6 p.m. news. Two years later, he returned to KTRK as executive producer for news. READ THE REST
I've heard good things about Davies in the past. In fact, he might have been Marvin Zindler's first photographer if I remember correctly.
