Davis, morning news anchor at CBS affiliate WGCL-TV, died Wednesday, a day after suffering a stroke while waiting for a flight at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, according to the station, known locally as CBS46.

Veteran Atlanta television news anchor Amanda Davis has died after a massive stroke. The station reported Davis suffered a stroke and was rushed to the hospital.

Davis was on her way to San Antonio, Texas to attend her father's funeral.

Just last week she shared a photo on Twitter of a bouquet of flowers she had been sent in the wake of her stepfather's death.

Davis' family is "asking for privacy at this hard time", the station reported.

Davis graduated Magna Cum Laude from Clark Atlanta University. Amanda left WAGA-TV in 2013 after a DUI arrest in 2012.

Westchester County officials are discussing approving Westchester's 2018 tax warrant, which is typically done in March. Cuomo conceded that prepayment may be hard for some households, the outlet reported.

She was also an anchor at CBS46, which she joined in January, who paid tribute to her when the news of her death broke.

The Emmy-award winning journalist has spoken openly about her battle with alcoholism in the past in a frank interview with The Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Davis, a popular face in Atlanta news, wasn't shy about sharing her story of overcoming the odds.

On December 24, Davis posted a Christmas message on Facebook that read, "The first Christmas after you lose someone is hard".
