Davis was best known for the 26 years she spent at WAGA-TV, now a Fox affiliate. She retired from the station in 2012 after a DUI arrest, and was arrested on the same charge again in 2015. Davis was candid about her drinking problems in a three-part series that aired on CBS46 in 2016. The station hired the award-winning television journalist to be a morning anchor in January.
