Who is Marty Davis?

Marty Davis is a former network radio and television news anchor with a master's degree in journalism from the American University, Washington, D.C..

In 1984, Marty Davis sent a photo of herself in a black exercise leotard to Dossier, a Washington, DC society magazine. She wrote an accompanying letter saying, "Yes, there are congressional wives who aren't cloying Barbie Dolls swathed in Ultrasuede." The photo was reprinted in newspapers and magazines worldwide and featured on TV news programs including ABC World News Tonight with Peter Jennings. It gained her the attention of a Hollywood agent, and she was briefly considered as a woman's talk show host.
