Intelligent, witty, and brimming with a captivating charisma possessed only by mega stars, sports and entertainment host Erica Renee Davis is Hollywood’s next “it” personality. For this prissy southern sweetheart, excellence has always been a lifestyle. Inspired by performances she saw while on college visits, a high school freshman Erica founded her school’s very first basketball dance team. Before her senior year, Erica was named Ware County’s Junior Miss and earned a spot in Georgia’s Junior Miss where she was awarded a fitness scholarship.
Earning two degrees from the University of Georgia – one in Journalism and the other in Political Science – while juggling commitments as choreographer and basketball dance team captain and as a UGA Redcoat Majorette, was a task to boot. But with her unparalleled work ethic, Erica seamlessly balanced her hectic performance schedule while satisfying her passion for academics.
After college, Erica dazzled football fans as an NFL cheerleader for the Atlanta Falcons but quickly retired her pom-poms and moved cross-country to Los Angeles. Soon after moving, her “bright lights, big city” dreams became a fast reality. Major brands like Target, KSwiss, and DSW sought Erica’s talent, booking her for their national commercial campaigns. Recognizing her exotic beauty, famed photographer, David LaChapelle, hand picked Erica as a model for a Guru clothing campaign.
Erica’s sassy personality and vast knowledge of sports snagged the attention of Vlaze Media producers, and they hired her as co-host for their popular show “2 Girls On Sports.” Famously recognized as the brainchild of Kevin Pollak and Jason Calacanis, ThisWeekIn Network chose Erica as host of ThisWeekIn Football, a weekly, 30-minute-long live webcast where Erica and co-hosts gave entertaining game analyses of college and professional match-ups. In January 2011, iTunes promoted ThisWeekIn Football on its homepage in its Super Bowl Party podcast feature.
A multi-faceted bombshell, Erica can also divulge information about music from various generations and genres. As the music editor and contributor for popular online magazine PositivelyCelebrity.com, her articles highlighted music’s current trends while emphasizing its colorful history. As a music insider for Sunset Strip’s Key Club, Erica scored exclusive backstage interviews from some of LA’s hottest music acts. Putting on her producer hat, Erica co-produced and guest hosted a Basketball Wives LA exclusive for Maria Menounos’ “After Buzz TV,” and in summer 2012, Erica joined the host panel of Pop Stop TV Live (Time Warner on Demand/Film On TV) as a pop culture insider.
As an entertainment correspondent, Erica has scored interviews with well-known artists like Magic Johnson, January Jones, Bai Ling, and Della Reese. One of ShoesTV’s newest host personalities, she has chatted with stars from casts of “Glee!,” “Pretty Little Liars,” and “Harry Potter.”
Combining her love for sports, pop culture, and entertainment, Erica created the Hotties Handbook to Sports: The Girl’s Fool-Proof Guide to GameDay — a sassy guide using trendy, non-intimidating approaches to teach women and men about sports while incorporating subcultures of fashion, fitness, relationships, community, and more.
Host, writer, and a breathtaking beauty, Erica Renee Davis is on path to become one of Hollywood’s hottest stars!
