Longtime Atlanta News Anchor Amanda Davis Suffers a ‘Massive Stroke’

Longtime Atlanta news anchor Amanda Davis dies after suffering a “massive stroke” while at the Atlanta airport Tuesday night. A legend is with us no more.

CBS46 News, where Davis worked as a news anchor, reports she had a massive spontaneous stroke. She was reportedly waiting to board a flight at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. Her father’s funeral was today.

Davis has had her share of struggles. She was arrested for drunk driving on more than one occasion. She is a real trooper. She admitted she was an alcoholic, got help and turned her life around.

This one hits hard because Davis has been a fixture in the Atlanta community for decades. I actually watched her a lot when she was at the local Fox News affiliate. She was one of the best journalists in the game bar none. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

Twitter reacted with shock to the news of Amanda Davis’ passing:
