Shockingly, on December 27th, CBS lost a member of its network family. Amanda Davis, 62, was an Emmy award-winning journalist for Fox5 Atlanta for 26 years, retiring in 2013. She returned to the airwaves in 2017 with CBS46.


Last week, Davis revealed that her step-father had passed away, just days before Christmas.

On Christmas Eve, Davis posted on Facebook about how to deal with the loss of a loved one around the holidays.

Stay strong, keep praising the Lord 🙏🏽❤️🎄

Davis, a recovering alcoholic, had spoken openly about her battle with the disease, saying she never believed she was an alcoholic.

“That wasn’t me,” she said. “I was a social drinker. I wanted to believe that there was still a way they could help me control it."

In 2015, Davis voluntarily checked into a rehabilitation facility and never looked back.

"I'm here by the grace of God!" she wrote for CBS. "I'm responsible for everything that's happened to me. I offer no excuses. This is what I know: God takes care of me, family and friends love me, and I got some much needed help. I hope sharing my journey will help someone else."
