The broadcast journalist and morning anchor of CBS 46 News whose career spanned more than 30 years passed away earlier this week at 62.

Emmy Award-winning broadcast journalist and morning anchor of CB2 46 News Amanda Davis was rushed to the hospital Tuesday night for a medical emergency after waiting to board a flight at Hartsfield-Jackson airport in Atlanta.

The veteran anchor died on Wednesday after enduring a “massive spontaneous stroke,” local reports said.

The beloved anchor’s colleagues, peers, and viewers expressed their condolences online:

In 2016, Davis opened up about her battles with alcohol addiction in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and talked about how treatment helped her push through. “I had learned a lot and gotten to the underlying issue for the drinking and my depression, which was the loss of that relationship. I was wallowing in that grief and drinking to feel better."
