Local television news anchor Amanda Davis died Wednesday after she was hospitalized Tuesday due to a "massive stroke", Atlanta's CBS News affiliate WGCL-TV reports. It was while Davis was making her way to her father's hometown in Texas that she suffered the stroke. She wrote on Facebook on Christmas Eve about how hard it is to get through the holidays after losing a loved one saying, "Stay strong, keep praising the Lord".

As news of Davis' death spreads, tributes to her are populating on social media.

She was an Atlanta TV legend and one hell of a lady. Before that, she had been a reporter and anchor for Atlanta's Fox affiliate, WAGA-TV, prior to leaving the station in 2013.

My prayers are with the family & friends of Atlanta's long time news anchor #amandadavis. 'She shared so much of herself, her vulnerability, on multiple nights, ' Reed said.
