Lou Davis, a former WMAR reporter, has died. He was 79.

Davis worked as a political reporter at the Baltimore ABC affiliate for 21 years. He later covered politics for the Maryland Public Television station.

“He gave reporters a good name,” said former WMAR reporter Andy Barth.


“Whether you were a politician, staff member or fledgling reporter, Lou was the person you turned to for guidance, insight and perspective,” Sue Kopen, a Philip Merrill College of Journalism lecturer at the University of Maryland told The Baltimore Sun. “You could find Lou at the Maryland Inn, after hours, working his story.”
