Veteran Atlanta news anchor Amanda Davis has died, according to CBS 46. She was 62.

Davis suffered a massive stroke Tuesday night while waiting to board a flight at the Atlanta airport, the station reported.

“Her family is asking for privacy at this difficult time,” CBS 46 posted online. “Amanda’s friends and colleagues at CBS 46 are praying for her family.”

The Emmy-award winning journalist joined CBS 46 as a morning in January after spending 26 years at WAGA-TV. Davis retired from WAGA in 2012 following a DUI-related arrest. In 2016, Davis opened up about her battle with alcoholism in an interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Davis was planning to fly to Texas for her step-father’s funeral when she suffered a stroke, according to CBS. On Sunday, she posted a message on her Facebook about celebrating Christmas after losing a loved on.

“Stay strong, keep praising the Lord,” Davis wrote.

Well, she died young. That's always news.

News people always get disproportionately high coverage when they die.
