"Amanda's companions and associates at CBS 46 are appealing to God for her family".

CBS affiliate WGCL-TV (CBS 46) reported that Davis, the station's morning news anchor, suffered a "massive, spontaneous" stroke Tuesday while waiting to board a flight at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The Emmy Award-winning anchor was scheduled to fly to Texas for her step-father's funeral when she suffered the stroke, the Journal-Constitution noted.

"Her family is asking for privacy at this hard time", CBS 46 posted online.

"I'm very pleased that Amanda Davis will be bringing three decades of experience reporting on the major news stories in Atlanta to CBS46".

Amanda Davis, 62, who had spent 26 years at Fox5 Atlanta, said on Facebook that her "pops" had passed last week. "After arrests for driving under the influence, Davis did a three-part series past year revealing her alcoholism for the first time and her road to recovery". My thoughts & prayers are w/ her loved ones.

She was also an anchor at CBS46, which she joined in January, who paid tribute to her when the news of her death broke.

"Rodney Ho wrote for the AJC, "'The CBS46 news team is in shock, ' said Steve Doerr, news director.

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

"'I'm glad she was able to make the comeback she did, ' said former 11Alive anchor Brenda Wood". It's uncertain which family member's funeral she had planned to attend. She helped launch "Good Day Atlanta" as a host in 1992 before going to evenings.
