Founder and Host
I was born in Hialeah, Florida, but my roots were firmly planted in Canada and it’s been my home since moving to the GTA when I was three.
My mom was born and raised in Illinois and my dad was a Toronto kid. They both pursued their show business dreams and met while performing on the same bill; Mom was a dancer and Dad a singer. No doubt my passion for entertaining stemmed from this. From singing along to Mom’s Tom Jones records, with a dog leash as a mic, to perusing the playground with a tape recorder interviewing other kids, I think my career path was determined at a very young age.
By the time I was 17, I was singing and playing bass in my first band, but when the dream of being a rock star died, I went back to school and studied Radio Broadcasting at Humber College.
In the spring of 1992 I got my first job, as a technical operator at CJCL1430 (Now the Fan590). After nearly 10 years there, covering just about every sport, I moved on to the now defunct Team1050.
In 1994, I married my partner in crime and love of my life and we were blessed with a son in 2000.
TV was always something I aspired to and in 2002 I landed my dream job as Leafs reporter at Sportsnet. After covering hockey and basketball I eventually ended up spending most of my 14 years there covering the sport I love the most, baseball. I have had so many career highlights, most notably having the opportunity to be there during the Jays pennant races of 2015 and 2016. To be present as Jose Bautista bat flipped his way into Blue Jays lore and the experience of champagne celebrations were unforgettable.
These days, with the loving support of my wife and son, I am experiencing the best of all worlds; hosting podcasts across the NSR Media Network, singing and playing guitar in We Ain’t Petty: A tribute to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and acting in TV commercials and shows.
Catch Barry Davis hosting the Outta the Park every Sunday and the Sessions podcasts every Friday. You can find out more about his band, We Ain’t Petty: A Tribute to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers at www.weaintpetty.com.
