Davis describes himself as a libertarian conservative, opposing smoking bans, religious indoctrination in public education, and illegal immigration. However, he also supports the War on Terror and stops short of embracing drug legalization.
Davis started as a news anchor and reporter at WKAZ/WQBE in Charleston, West Virginia from 1979 to 1981. From there, he went to WOKV in Jacksonville, Florida, serving again as a news anchor until launching a talk show in 1982. From there he went to WHBQ in Memphis, Tennessee beginning in 1985, WMC in Memphis in 1989, WTKN in Tampa, Florida briefly in 1990, WWRC in Washington, DC later in 1990, and finally WBAP in Dallas-Ft. Worth, Texas in 1994, where he remains to this day.
The Mark Davis Show airs from 8:30 to 10:45 CT, allowing the 15 minutes for Paul Harvey prior to Rush Limbaugh at 11:00 am CT.
Davis has been heard in national syndication with two shows, a Sunday three-hour broadcast from 1998-2003 and a two-hour weekday show which followed his local program from 2005-2007. The latter was produced mainly for ABC's satellite talk radio channel.
