Longtime Atlanta news anchor Amanda Davis dies after suffering stroke

29 December 2017

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. CBS affiliate WGCL-TV reports that Davis, the station's morning news anchor, died Wednesday night. She was on her way to Texas after the death of her stepfather. The Clark-Atlanta University graduate and Emmy-winning journalist spent 26 years at WAGA-TV, now a Fox affiliate. "Her family is asking for privacy at this hard time", CBS 46 wrote online. Amanda Davis, a good friend who made it through bad times, rebuilt her life and career with a determination I've never seen.

She captioned it, "Stay strong, keep praising the Lord ❤️" The comment thread is now filled with expressions of grief about Davis' own death. She started with WAGA in 1986 and retired from the station in 2013.

In Davis' last tweet on December 20, she thanked her friend Debbie Turman for sending flowers after the death of her father.
