  • Longtime Atlanta news anchor hospitalized

A longtime news anchor in Atlanta died after suffering a massive stroke on Tuesday night, WGCL-TV reports.

Amanda was at the on Tuesday when she rushed to the hospital and underwent treatment.

It wasn't immediately understood to what degree Davis' death may have been attributable to her drinking problem and what health woes her addiction may have caused.

The veteran anchor worked at Fox5 Atlanta for 26 years and retired in 2013.

Davis leaves behind her mother and her daughter, LA-based actress Melora Rivera.




Davis joined CBS46 as a morning anchor in January.

The Atlanta community is mourning the loss of a beloved news anchor, Amanda Davis, who tragically died at the age of 62 on December 27. It added that Davis' friends and colleagues at the channel were praying for her family. She had spoken candidly about her battles with alcoholism, the newspaper recalled.

In recent years, she had talked publicly about her struggles with alcohol and depression after her third arrest on DUI charges, and did an in-depth series about her alcoholism in 2016. Also not clear is whether Davis may have at any point relapsed during her road to sobriety. On Sunday, she posted a message on her Facebook about celebrating Christmas after losing him. 'I wanted to believe that there was still a way they could help me control it'.

"I was saddened to hear about the passing of Amanda Davis".

Now Davis' friends, family and viewers have her very own words of wisdom to ease the pain as their mourning begins. "I remember meeting and taking a picture with her when was about 8 or 9 yrs old", recalled one woman on social media.
