Mike Davis has been working as a meteorologist since 1987. Recently, he was accused of possessing child pornography by the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office in Columbus.
He was arrested on Thursday morning and was booked into the Franklin County Jail pending arraignment in Franklin County Municipal Court Friday morning. Later, NBC Columbus reports, citing court documents, that on August 5, Davis, 60, is accused of trying to sell a pornographic image of a female child.
WBNS issued the following statement to NBC4 and said “At around 10 a.m. this morning, we learned that Mike Davis was arrested by the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office. We are currently learning more about the details and we will be reporting more about the story. We have no further comment at this time.”
On September 5, 2019, his house was searched by sheriff’s deputies and he was living at Upper Arlington, northwest of downtown Columbus. On September 6, he is scheduled to be arraigned.
He holds the American Meteorological Society Seal of Approval and the AMS Certificate of Broadcast Meteorology. He’s even served on the AMS Board of Broadcast Meteorology.

In addition to supporting many charitable organizations, Davis loves going to schools and talking to kids about the weather. Then, he also spearheaded community educational exhibits like the “Mike Davis Weather Adventure” at the Franklin Park Conservatory, and “The Ocean Above, Our Global Weather” at COSI.

He completed education from the University of Minnesota and holds a journalism degree. Later, he attended Ohio State University and studied Meteorology.
Mike is married to wife Tama and has three children. His hobbies include a passion for family, writing, wine, ice hockey and, of course, the weather.
On February 9, 2015, he wished his wife on her birthday on Facebook and wrote “A very happy birthday to my lovely wife, Tama, true proof that you don’t get older, only better. I celebrate every year that I’ve been lucky enough to be with you. You’re a great wife, mother, life coach and an even better friend. Love you, honey. Happy Birthday!.”
One of the couple’s children, Logan Davis, was a goaltender with Ohio State University during his time at the school between 2013 and 2017.
