Davis Dunavin


Davis Dunavin loves telling stories, whether on the radio or around the campfire. He fell in love with sound-rich radio storytelling while working as an assistant reporter at KBIA public radio in Columbia, Missouri. Before coming back to radio, he worked in digital journalism as the editor of Newtown Patch. As a freelance reporter, his work for WSHU aired nationally on NPR. Davis is a proud graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism; he started in Missouri and ended up in Connecticut, which, he'd like to point out, is the same geographic trajectory taken by Mark Twain.

For thousands of people across the country, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is a day of service to their community. About 500 volunteers in Bridgeport, Connecticut spent today doing things like sweeping streets and putting together food packages for low-income residents.

Volunteer Sherise Farill pushed a mop down the narrow halls of Harrison Apartments, a low-income housing unit in Bridgeport. About 20 fellow volunteers cleaned up the halls around her. Most of them are students from the University of Bridgeport, like Katherine Collado.

This summer GE will move its corporate headquarters to Boston from Fairfield, where it’s been since 1974. But GE’s presence in Connecticut goes back almost 100 years. When GE bought one of its first factories in Connecticut in 1920, it wasn’t because of taxes or quality of life. It was because of the Russian Revolution.
