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.

Ever since Joe Nichols played our show at the Spiediefest & Balloon Rally, his Binghamton fan base has grown two-fold.  Joe's 'Crickets' album produced a number one with 'Sunny and 75', and now with the release of 'YEAH', he stands a very good chance of returning to the top.  It's already a hot HAWK request and one of my new favorites.
