Hank Davis came to KTUU from the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Despite the distance and the obvious climate differences, the beauty of Alaska's landscape and the abundance of wildlife have captured his interest since youth.
Hank got his start in journalism while attending Mississippi State University, where he worked as a staff writer for the school's award-winning newspaper, The Reflector. Hank also spent time as a media-relations intern with MSU's baseball program. Graduating with honors, Hank earned a Bachelors of Arts degree in Communication, while double majoring in Journalism and Public Relations.
Before joining the Channel 2 News team in November of 2018, Hank anchored the morning and noon newscasts for Gulfport, Mississippi's FOX/NBC affiliate, WXXV 25. During his time at WXXV, Hank reported on political and cultural issues that garnered national coverage, regularly covered the New Orleans Saints and even flew into the eye of a hurricane with the U.S. Air Force "Hurricane Hunters."
Hank also spent time working in the production department for the Milwaukee Brewers AA affiliate, the Biloxi Shuckers.
Hank comes from a family of avid outdoorsmen and is excited to take on all of the adventures Alaska offers, including his love for camping, fishing and capturing wildlife on film.
Hank loves to cook as well, so when he's not slaying new challenges in the kitchen, his spare time is spent perfecting his fantasy football strategies and rooting on his favorite teams: the Dallas Cowboys, the Atlanta Braves and his beloved Mississippi State Bulldogs.
