Mark Davidson recently celebrated his 10-year anniversary at KSN and seven years as one of the co-anchors on Kansas Today. He came to Wichita in 2005 as a weekend sports anchor and reporter after spending the two previous years at WIBW in Topeka. During his days in sports, he covered KU’s 2008 National Championship, the Jayhawks’ Orange Bowl and Wichita State baseball’s Super Regional in Tallahassee, FL.
Mark moved to the anchor desk in 2009 which means waking up about the time he went to sleep as a sportscaster. He likes the idea of helping fellow early-risers prepare for what’s ahead, but says, “If you can’t have fun while you’re at it, it’s going to be a long day.” He also enjoys working on longer-form stories that impact viewers in their daily lives.
He hasn’t abandoned his roots and often joins team coverage of major sporting events like the Shockers Final Four run and the Royals trip to the World Series. As a life-long Royals fan, he’s still celebrating their 2015 World Championship.
The Kansas City-native graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in broadcast journalism, and asks only that those from KU and K-State don’t hold that against him.
He and his wife, Lynne, were married in 2013, and the couple recently celebrated the birth of their daughter, Andie. In his spare time, Mark enjoys running, watching sports and playing golf… although not as well as he would like. He’s also a Big Brother and serves on the Sedgwick Co. BBBS Community Advisory Board. He was named the Kansas Big Brother of the year in 2014.
