Jason Davis is going from "On the Road" to Down the Road. The long-time Minnesota TV journalist announced his retirement Thursday and will hang it up on May 30. KSTP, his home since 1976, will air a week of tributes starting May 19.

"Jason won the first Emmy awarded in KSTP history in 1996," said Stanley Hubbard, chairman of Hubbard Broadcasting. "He has been a tremendous asset to KSTP and will be missed."

Davis, best known for his easy-going feature stories, said he's miss the exciting travel and fascinating people that he's gotten to meet.

"I have been given the unique freedom to choose my own stories, travel where I will and write and produce the story I want to tell," he said. "I don't think any other person in the television industry has been given the freedom I have enjoyed at KSTP."
