|Jeff Davis has been known worldwide as
the Voice of WLS. Not only on the air at WLS, but his voice was the voice
you heard on IDs, contests, promos and more for more than 35 years. It
seems like has has always been there. Jeff arrived at WLS in 1974 from
WGH in Norfolk while just in his 20's. He was the Director of Special Projects
for Music Director Jim Smith and Program Director John Gehron and worked
in WLS on Saturday night. In 1978 Jeff replaced Steve King from 10-2 pm
at night. He worked nights until 1986. Jeff is renowned as the official
WLS historian. "I keep archives that span back
to the very beginning (1924). I also have done retrospectives of WLS history
that have aired on WLS multiple times. "Were" at WLS is not accurate. I
still am. I still do occasional air work. I'll be on again Memorial Day
weekend. But, in the building, I was there from April 1974 - November 1988.
There has never been a time since 1974 that I have not been involved with
WLS in some fashion."
