Marty Davis (born January 8, 1949 in Detroit, Michigan) is a former network radio and television news anchor with a master's degree in journalism from the American University, Washington, D.C. (1980).

Marty (Martha Cole) Davis was married to U.S. Representative Robert W. Davis (1932–2009), a Republican from Michigan, from 1976 to 1989.[1] Congressman Davis represented Michigan's 11th District after his 1978 election until his retirement in 1993.

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."[2] The photo was reprinted in newspapers[3] 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.[4]

Marty Davis has appeared on NBC's Today Show,[5] MSNBC, CNBC, CNN[6] and other media outlets. She also served as a correspondent for Gary Collins' syndicated talk show Hour Magazine.[7] She initially tried to avoid the media in the wake of the photograph's appearance, but explained to the press, "I decided I'd be a fool if I didn't take advantage of all this publicity. It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I thought the publicity would peter out, but it hasn't. If this is, indeed, a springboard for something else, then I should at least go for it and see what happens."[8]

Davis has appeared on such talk radio programs as Westwood One's syndicated The Jim Bohannon Show and WOR 710 New York City.
