Co-Host & Assistant Producer
I’m the girl who wears many hats here in The Bert Show studio! I'm Davi! You can find me on-air, editing audio, running the board, interviewing listeners on the street, sitting in on the Entertainment Buzz & facilitating our guests. The party starts at 5AM every Monday and it's a privilege to be a part of The Bert Show "fam." If you couldn't already tell - I like to keep busy.
I was born a beach baby in Pensacola, Florida. Shortly after, my parents pursued their dream of owning a farm and moving to the Mountain Momma, West Virginia. I went from scooping sand to scooping poop from the likes of horses, chickens, buffalo, rabbits, ducks, geese, deer, and even two Capuchin Monkeys. I got a machete for my 8th birthday "for safety" and killed Copperheads with it. Challenge me to a FARM OFF, I dare ya. I played every sport I could from basketball, to softball, to track. But I hated the competitiveness and "smack-talk". I only played because I enjoyed the unity of being part of a team with a common goal.
When I was 16 I packed my bags, left the zoo behind, and moved to Georgia to finish school and chase my many dreams. The first stations I listened to as a resident? 99X and The Bert Show. I said, then and there, I would be on one of those stations one day. I worked as a production techie and actor throughout high school and college. I spent many years working unpaid gigs while gathering critical knowledge and skill. By night I was a bartender and when morning came I worked brunch service to pay my bills. This left a few hours for sleep or auditions before I'd go back and do it all again. I joined an Elvis Tribute band. Then I was awarded an internship working in Promotions for Rock 100.5. I was performing dinner theatre in Little 5 Points in 2007 when a friend asked me to help with a "simple box step" dance number for the Dames Aflame. Soon after, I would add Burlesque to my list of skills. The lights, laughs, and sequins of this sensual world stole my heart. I had always been playing a character on stage. In this world the character was a more confident me - and I loved it. I began hosting burlesque shows and writing jokes to stall for time in between acts. This is where I started dabbling in stand up comedy.
I started writing/producing/and hosting my own comedy variety shows and pageants in venues all over Atlanta, collaborating with many incredible local talents, including the band Blair Crimmins & The Hookers. I was instantly smitten with the piano playing, banjo strumming, jazz singer. We fell in love over mutual passion for all things vintage. I would say we've been inseparable ever since but he's a touring musician.
My internship turned into a part-time position here at Cumulus Media as a script writer and producer. I hosted an on-air show on 99X overnights, just getting my feet wet as a DJ. I started submitting more content to the morning show, putting myself out there comedically and emotionally. I worked harder and longer hours. I did voiceover. I said yes to every opportunity and was awarded with tremendous knowledge which made me an integral employee at the station. This long road of eclectic tastes and unique talents led me to a promotion working full time with The Bert Show, a #1 rated morning show. It is on this show that I learned the strength and beauty that grows from vulnerability. It's easy to be funny. It takes a special kind of talent to be REAL. I am so fortunate to be a part of this team. A team with a common goal of excellence and rising above.
Nowadays, I own a home in Atlanta with my incredible composer husband, Blair Crimmins. 4 new albums and many miles later - we've been happily married since 2014. We have two fur-kids named Mama Cass and Banjo. My ever growing list of beloved hobbies now includes filmmaking and yoga. I love putting another stamp in my passport and look forward my trips every year. You can still catch me performing all over town and doing stand up comedy - so follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Insta, etc. to stay in the know! But you can always catch me cutting up with my work family, weekdays 6am-10am!
Turn on your radio - I'll make you giggle.
