Atlanta News Reporter Amanda Davis Dies After Suffering Massive Stroke

Davis was waiting to board her flight to Texas when she suffered the sudden stroke, with medics unable to save her.

The station says Davis was surrounded by family when she died.

Davis, 62, was an anchor at WGCL-TV for almost a year after spending 26 years at WAGA-TV, the newspaper said. A statement on the station's website said Davis' "family is asking for privacy at this hard time". "Amanda's companions and associates at CBS 46 are appealing to God for her family".

Davis, a popular face in Atlanta news, wasn't shy about sharing her story of overcoming the odds. She wrote on Facebook on Christmas Eve about how hard it is to get through the holidays after losing a loved one saying, "Stay strong, keep praising the Lord". On Wednesday, she passed away after being hospitalized for what was described as a "massive" stroke.

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

Just last week she shared a photo on Twitter of a bouquet of flowers she had been sent in the wake of her stepfather's death.

"'I'm glad she was able to make the comeback she did, ' said former 11Alive anchor Brenda Wood. She will truly be missed". It's uncertain which family member's funeral she had planned to attend. She had talked publicly about her struggles with alcohol and depression after her third arrest on DUI charges. During her time as a reporter, Amanda won various awards, including: the RTDNA Edward R. Murrow Award, Georgia Association of Broadcasters Gabby Award the Atlanta Association of Black Journalists Pioneer of the Year Award, and ten Southeast Regional Emmy Awards.
