Amanda Davis Cause Of Death


A longtime Atlanta news anchor died Wednesday after suffering a massive spontaneous stroke, according to WSB-TV.

The station says she had a stroke Tuesday while waiting for a flight at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and was rushed to a hospital. By 9:45 p.m. Wednesday, the station confirmed that she had died at the hospital surrounded by family.

Just last week Davis thanked a friend who had sent her flowers following her stepfather's passing, writing on Twitter: "Thanks to my GF Debbie Turman for the lovely flowers as I grieve over the loss of my pops".

Davis' family is "asking for privacy at this hard time". In 2012, she joined CBS 46 (WGCL-TV) to continue delivering the news.

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

Davis was a legend in the field of journalism in Atlanta.

She had recently written about her father's death on Twitter. Davis was also honored with the Keenan's Kids Foundation Media Award for her work with "Wednesday's Child", a segment on Fox5 dedicated to helping foster children in Atlanta to find families.

She opened up about her battle with alcohol addiction in 2016 and how treatment helped her. The anchor struggled with alcoholism while in the public eye, finding herself in a vehicle crash and being arrested for a DUI.

Ho also wrote, "Davis was off the air for more than three years when CBS46 gave her another shot a year ago to anchor again". On Sunday, she posted a message on her Facebook about celebrating Christmas after losing him. On the air, she said, "I am an alcoholic" - but she was so very much more.
