Fans across metro Atlanta remember anchor Amanda Davis

Longtime Atlanta news anchor hospitalized

An award winning veteran TV journalist in Atlanta died suddenly Wednesday after suffering a 'massive spontaneous stroke, ' while waiting to board a flight for her stepfather's funeral.

Her death drew reaction from some of the city's most prominent people.

Amanda Davis, 62, who had spent 26 years at Fox5 Atlanta, said on Facebook that her "pops" had passed last week.

In a statement, the network said: 'Her family is asking for privacy at this hard time'. "Amanda's friends and colleagues at CBS 46 are praying for her family", the station reported in a brief statement on its website.

Other details about her death are not clear. " On Tuesday, while on her way to celebrate his life, Davis suffered a stroke". We thought she retired then she fought her way through to get back to doing what she loved.

She also posted about "staying strong" over the Christmas period following the loss of her beloved parent. "Amanda Davis persevered through it all, despite the dark time she knew her goal and it was her passion".

She was rushed to a hospital and treated, but it proved to be too late. She had talked publicly about her struggles with alcohol and depression after her third arrest on DUI charges. 'I wanted to believe that there was still a way they could help me control it'.

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

"Saddened to hear about the sudden passing of Atlanta news icon, Amanda Davis", Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed tweeted Wednesday night.
