The dean of Texas talk radio is closing in on 40 years of shows, most of them here in DFW, establishing him as a foremost conservative voice both locally and nationally. A morning fixture on 660 AM The Answer, Mark’s thoughts are found across radio, social media and columns in the Dallas Morning News, Newsweek and Townhall.
MARK DAVIS is one of the most successful radio talk show hosts in America. Almost 40 years of hosting, the majority in his native Texas, has established him as a foremost conservative voice both locally and nationally.
A 1979 journalism graduate of the University of Maryland, Mark began as a news reporter and anchor in Charleston, West Virginia before moving to Jacksonville, Florida, where his first talk show opportunity arose in 1982. Subsequent stops in Memphis, Tampa and Washington DC led to a return to his native Texas in 1994.
Joining Salem Media Group’s 660 AM The Answer in June 2012, Mark brings a wealth of experience and exposure in other media, writing for Newsweek, Townhall and the Dallas Morning News, while making infrequent TV appearances on local stations and various news networks.
The Mark Davis Show is a reliable source for opinions and passion on topics from around Dallas-Ft. Worth, across the nation and around the world. Ranging from politics to pop culture, broad philosophy to consumer issues to history to sports to whatever occurs to Mark and his callers, it is a show marked by unpredictability, a fast pace and always a sense of humor.
Mark and his wife Lisa have an 18-year-old son, Ethan, exploring the approaching world of college and adult life. Mark’s daughter Regina is a manager for a company opening upscale gaming destinations in major airports. The family can be reliably found enjoying food, movies, recreation and togetherness time wherever it arises.
Mark is a familiar keynote speaker and Master of Ceremonies at various charity and political events. His deep roots in the community are evidenced by the bond established since 1994 between Mark and area listeners. He is the author of two books, “Upside Down: How the Left Has Turned Right Into Wrong, Truth Into Lies and Good Into Bad,” and “Lone Star America: How Texas Can Save Our Country.”
