Longtime Atlanta news anchor hospitalized

Right side- DUI arrests.

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.

"I feel whole again, ready to see what life has in store for me next", she said.

Davis leaves behind a daughter and a large number of fans and supporters, including Atlanta favorites Tyler Perry and Mayor Kasim Reed.

"Amanda was at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on Tuesday when she rushed to the hospital and underwent treatment".
