RFFocus is now committed to SHOWING urban radio people how to diversify their skills and to use their leverage in communications to build a career in other arenas. We have seen many comedians do it by coming into our arena and taking over but we have one skill that they don’t have. We are trained and EXCELLENT communicators. That leaves the door to doing something else WIDE open, we just have to believe in ourselves. While we all love radio and music, when it stops loving us, we must look at divorcing it and starting a new relationship. I hope this inspires someone.
Reggie Reg Davis is a 30 year radio broadcast veteran. He worked in markets across the nation such as WQMG at Greensboro N.C., Tampa Florida at 95.7 The Beat/iHeartMedia and afternoon drive at KJLH. Even though Reggie enjoyed his travels to various markets, he began (and ended) his career in his favorite market in his hometown Detroit, Michigan. With his massive involvement with the community, aside from his on air gig, he made a life of doing GOD’s work, helping others, in the city of Detroit.
He won three “Radio Personality of The Year” awards from various regional radio ranking groups and he was nominated for a national “Radio Personality of The Year” award in 2001 by Radio & Records (R&R). He won numerous Community Outreach and Community Advocate Awards over a 30-year span.
“This decision [to leave] was also based on PPM’S arrival, personality radio vanishing, salary compensations being demolished, comedian syndication take-over and a host of other deals that began to slowly evolve into the new radio lifestyle that no longer was appealing to true radio vets.”
In 2004 Reggie was granted an honorary degree from the Specs Howard School of Broadcast Arts and in 2015 he received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Detroit Entertainment Awards Group. Reggie was a Rosa Parks Scholar who was granted a full ride of undergrad studies at Wayne State University he is an Alma Mater from the great Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
