Amanda Davis, a morning news anchor in Atlanta, died after a massive stroke while waiting for a flight at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport Tuesday night, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. According to reports by CBS 46, Davis was at the Atlanta airport when she suffered the stroke. She was en route to San Antonio, Texas, to attend the funeral of a family member, CBS46 News Director Steve Doerr said.

AJC reported Davis posting on Twitter last week that her "pops" had died and his funeral was on Wednesday. Understandably, Amanda's family is asking for "privacy at this hard time". "Amanda's friends and colleagues at CBS 46 are praying for her family".

During her career, Davis has won multiple Southeast Emmy Awards and an Edward R. Murrow Award.

The star had worked at Fox5 Atlanta for 26 years, retiring in 2013.

She wrote: 'Stay strong, keep praising the Lord'.

Veteran Atlanta television news anchor Amanda Davis, whose achievements included launching a segment encouraging foster children adoptions and an in-depth series about her alcoholism, has died. "She will truly be missed".

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

Davis is now an anchor at WGCL. She had spoken candidly about her battles with alcoholism, the newspaper recalled. Also not clear is whether Davis may have at any point relapsed during her road to sobriety. The same year, she admitted she was an alcoholic and talked about her personal struggles in a three-part series with CBS 46. She helped launch "Good Day Atlanta" as a host in 1992 before going to evenings.
