Mayo Davison is a Multimedia Journalist for KOAA News5 who joined the team after three years in the "Sunflower State" with KWCH 12 in Wichita, Kansas.
Mayo graduated from Friends University in 2017 with a bachelor's degree in Communications. While in college, she had the opportunity to intern at KWCH 12, the CBS affiliate.
During her internship, she worked alongside several award-winning journalists who taught her the ins and outs of the news world. With hard work and a passion for telling stories, Mayo's internship led to a full-time position as a Digital Content Producer.
From there, she worked her way up to become a Digital Reporter. Her "Hot on KWCH" segment showcased positive stories in the community while also highlighting people going above and beyond.
Now, as a reporter living out her dream, she's excited to get to know the people who call Colorado home and share their stories.
While she's been in Colorado Springs, her most memorable assignments have been covering the Black Lives Matter and George Floyd protests, and the Colorado City water issues.
Mayo covers education stories from all across the state. She enjoys talking with parents, students, and teachers about issues their facing and getting answers.
She's really enjoyed her time in Colorado so far, she loves seeing the mountains every day and working with her dedicated colleagues. They make going to work every day well worth it. Since living in "Colorful Colorado" she's loved the opportunity to get into shape and participate in hiking trips.
Outside of work, Mayo is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists. She enjoys reading science fiction books, spending time with her dog Remy, and participating in community events. She is a huge foodie, so you can likely catch her around town trying out a new restaurant.
