John Davison

I’m a local boy, born and raised and the second youngest of 4 kids. I love the outdoors, and much like Kenny Chesney and Zac Brown, if I could, I would spend the rest of my life on a beach with my toes in the sand. I enjoy being around positive people that dream big. Nature and animals are an important part of who I am, in fact, I have many rescue cats. In my spare time, I like to work out using non-traditional weight lifting techniques. Friends will call me a health nut. Country music is an essential part of my life as the Hawk has been very good to me since 1986. I’ve always said I have the most loyal listeners in the world. It’s thanks to my listening family that I received the Binghamton Broadcaster’s “Working Broadcaster of the Year” honor.

Norwich Native, Kaitlyn Jackson Releases Strong New Album [REVIEW]

The first time I met Kaitlyn Jackson in the Hawk studio, I thought she was 19 or 20.  Then she told me she was 13. Wow!

Kaitlyn has always projected a great deal of vocal maturity, the kind that when she sings, she commands attention.
