Fans across metro Atlanta remember anchor Amanda Davis

Matters came to fore when Davis had a "medical emergency" at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Tuesday morning. Amanda Davis was at the Hartsfield-Jackson International airport in Atlanta on December 26 when she suffered a "massive, spontaneous stroke", according to CBS 46, where she worked.

Her death drew reaction from some of the city's most prominent people. Before taking the job, she worked at WAGA-TV in Atlanta for 26 years.

"Her family is asking for privacy at this hard time". In 2012, she joined CBS 46 (WGCL-TV) to continue delivering the news.

Davis gave an interview detailing her battle with alcoholism in a 2016 interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.




During her career, Davis has won multiple Southeast Emmy Awards and an Edward R. Murrow Award. She was en route to San Antonio, Texas, to attend the funeral of a family member, CBS46 News Director Steve Doerr said.

"Saddened to hear about the sudden passing of Atlanta news icon, Amanda Davis", Reed added. She had talked publicly about her struggles with alcohol and depression after her third arrest on DUI charges. Colleagues expressed sadness about the news on Twitter. We thought she retired then she fought her way through to get back to doing what she loved.
