Spencer Davidson is the Sports Director at NEWSChannel 2. He also anchors weeknights at 6pm and 11pm, in addition to, Sports Express on Friday nights.

Spencer moved into the position after being the Weekend Sports Anchor/Reporter since August 2014.

Spencer joined NEWSChannel 2 as the Digital Media Producer in 2013 following his May graduation from Hofstra University in Long Island with a Bachelor of Arts in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Political Science.

Prior to working at WKTV full time, Spencer spent two summers as the Sports Intern at the station.

While attending Hofstra University, Spencer was a staff member of 88.7FM WRHU, where he was a part of the sports department, providing play by play, color commentary, and beat reporting for various Hofstra Pride DI sports teams.

He also was a Feature Reporter for the New York Islanders of the NHL, despite his heavy allegiance to the Rangers. There he interviewed some of the top players within the Islanders locker room, and around the league for air during Islanders' game broadcasts on WRHU. His interviews were also aired during the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs against the Pittsburgh Penguins, which were simulcasted on 98.7FM ESPN Radio New York, and WFAN 660AM.

Spencer returns to Central New York, where he grew up in New Hartford and graduated from New Hartford High School in 2009. He was a member of the 2008-09 Spartans ice hockey state champion team, and played lacrosse as well.

In addition to the Rangers, Spencer is also a die-hard Yankees fan, and loves the Knicks and Jets, as well as the hometown Utica Comets.
