She was initially hospitalized after suffering the stroke while at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on Tuesday, December 26.

She had recently written about her father's death on Twitter.

Davis, 62, was an anchor at WGCL-TV for almost a year after spending 26 years at WAGA-TV, the newspaper said.

"Her family is asking for privacy at this hard time". Amanda was a morning news anchor and noon news anchor for Atlanta's station CBS 46.

Former colleague and co-anchor at Fox5, Russ Spencer, who worked with her for 15 years, shared on social media: 'Amanda Davis has gone to be with God, leaving us - leaving me - shocked and heartbroken by the suddenness of her passing'.




Davis is survived by her mother and daughter, Hollywood writer Melora Rivera. She was en route to San Antonio, Texas, to attend the funeral of a family member, CBS46 News Director Steve Doerr said.

'Stay strong, keep praising the Lord, ' Davis wrote. She started with WAGA in 1986 and retired from the station in 2013. "So sad to hear she has passed".

The veteran news anchor, who had opened up about her struggles with alcoholism, had posted a message to her Facebook about celebrating Christmas after losing a loved on.

"I feel whole again, ready to see what life has in store for me next", she said.

CBS46 morning news anchor Amanda Davis has suffered a massive spontaneous stroke. She was rushed to the hospital to undergo treatment, but she tragically died around 9:30 p.m. the next day at the age of 62.
