Longtime Atlanta news anchor Amanda Davis dies after suffering stroke

Davis joined CBS46 as a morning anchor in January. The Clark-Atlanta University graduate and Emmy-winning journalist spent 26 years at WAGA-TV, currently a Fox affiliate. 

We want to send our thoughts and prayers to Amanda's family and the entire CBS46 team.

“I first met Amanda when she was a rookie reporter for WSB Television. Early in her career, she interviewed my father at his West End office, and I have been a fan and followed her ever since that day. My father and I were enamored by her presence and professionalism. 

“Over the years, I grew to know her as a great and gracious person. She was forthright in her reporting and endearing as a person and a friend. Her passing Wednesday was a great tragedy for those who knew and loved her. My heart goes out to her daughter Melora, her mother and her extended family. All of Atlanta shares in their mourning.” – Atlanta City Councilmember Michael Julian Bond, Post 1 At-Large
