Mike Davis recently became the first employee of the Silver State Sports and Entertainment Network, an affiliate of FOX5 Vegas and Gray Television. Davis is now in a position to elevate sports media and storytelling in the community as Las Vegas becomes the sports capital of the world.

Davis has known what career path he wanted to pursue since he made his peers laugh giving his first class presentation in the fourth grade. In college, Davis worked for the Howard Stern Show as the head production intern and began his on-air career at CBS19 in Texas before moving to Las Vegas in 2019. Davis spent four years as a reporter and host for Fox 5 Vegas’ MORE show, bringing entertainment and insight to members of the community. Davis looks forward to fostering a genuine sports dialogue in Las Vegas and maybe someday working with Las Vegas’ very own NBA franchise.

“It’s not good enough to just report on the community, you have to engage and become a part of the community,” said Davis. “Some of my favorite experiences have been working with Friendship Circle Las Vegas for their Walk4Friendship and Inclusive Basketball events, the Children’s Heart Foundation with the Walk with the Heart of a Child event and the reporter workshop I put together for seniors at Sun City Anthem.”
