Taja Davis

Taja grew up in California -- and in 7 different countries on 6 different continents, due to her father playing professional basketball overseas. Because of this, Taja feels she gained a great sense of cultural awareness and sensitivity at a young age.

Taja began her journalism career with sports. While attending UC Santa Barbara, she was heavily involved with the Athletics Department's Video Production Board. Taja was an intern for her first two years, then the department promoted her to a part-time position as their Video Captian. In that position, she reported major campus game highlights and hosted their TV show, Gauchos In Thirty, which aired across Santa Barbara weekly. During those collegiate years, she also interned at KEYT NewsChannel 3, ESPN3, and became a freelance editor.

After graduating UCSB in 2015 with a Bachelor's Degree in Communication, a certificate in Sports Management, and a certificate in Technology Management Entrepreneurship, Taja worked at KEYT as a news editor and as an exclusive Friday Football Focus Multimedia Journalist. Although she has a Sports Reporting background, news has always been her first love and she is excited to start her career as a News Reporter.

Viewing journalism as an act of service, Taja is diligent about informing the viewers about the latest happenings and the important unsung issues of your communities to light.

She enjoys spending time with loved ones, living a fitness-oriented lifestyle, cuddling with her dog, and is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
