Episode 18: Janine Davis
Janine Davis is an award-winning 30-year radio news and entertainment journalist, who is known for her unique style of delivering entertainment, news, and inspiration to the airwaves.
From her quick-witted ‘dirt’ on celebrities, to the live Facebook mix show featuring JD and her best dance moves, to JD’s inspirational moment where she shares personal battles and triumphs, JD keeps listeners engaged and entertained.
Janine is the founder of the Girl Talk Foundation, Inc., a nonprofit that hosts structured programs to develop girls’ (ages 11-16) self-awareness, self-management and social competence.
Janine started Girl Talk over 15 years ago after having candid conversations with young girls in the Charlotte school system. What she learned motivated her to create a series of ‘real girl talk ‘ (no parent) sessions. Her first ‘girl talk’ session attracted 200 girls.
Since its inception, Girl Talk has served more than 30,000 girls and their families. The foundation’s signature event — Prom Project — has helped more than 26,000 girls and families get outfitted for prom.
JD is a champion making an impact in the community. She often serves as a guest contributor on WCCB’s “The Edge,” among other TV appearances. She’s a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and unapologetically shouts “AGGIE PRIDE” when in support of her alma mater N.C. A&T State University. You can hear her on the midday shift (10am – 3pm) each weekday at V 101.9.
