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.

3 Things Binghamton Can Do Now To Increase Better Living

 

Binghamton consistently ranks as one of the most depressing cities to live in the United States.  It's also the #2 most obese and the #1 most pessimistic city to live.  Very sad because I was born and raised here all my life.  Some will blame it on the weather, lack of jobs, high welfare, and others say it's the aging infrastructure.

‘Puttin’ fore Paws’ Golf Tournament for Project Paw

Paying the Winter heating bills this season has been been a great challenge for many of us including local animal shelters like Project Paw.  What makes it even more tough for shelter is they don't receive funding from the county, city or state, like some other local shelters do. They rely strictly on individual donations.  And the number of cats housed at Project Paw is at an all-time high.
