Amanda Davis Announces Her Retirement

Amanda Davis Announces Her Retirement As expected, disgraced local news anchor Amanda Davis announced her retirement from Fox 5 after more than 26 years at the station.

According to Rodney Ho of the AJC, Davis, 56, made the announcement in a special statement that aired on Fox 5 during the 10 p.m. newscast on Thursday.

Davis had not been on the air since November 11 when she was involved in a wrong-way car crash.

According to Ho, the station aired tributes to Davis from retired Channel 2 Action News anchor Monica Pearson, former Atlanta mayor and U.N. ambassador Andy Young and V-103 morning host Ryan Cameron.

“We want to thank you for what you meant to us,” said co-anchor Russ Spencer. “We hope you know how much we love and appreciate you.”

Davis was driving northbound in the southbound lane of Piedmont Avenue around 12:20 a.m. November 11, when she crashed head on into a southbound vehicle.

The other driver was taken to Grady hospital with minor injuries. Both vehicles sustained front end damage. Davis was charged with DUI, failure to maintain her lane and reckless driving. It was Davis’ 2nd DUI arrest.

She is currently awaiting trial at Fulton County state court.

      I hate when adults complain about where they live. For example, I’m in VA. But I hate people who come here from say NY,NJ, CA or somewhere more lively, are here for YEARS complaining about it. “It’s not enough night life. The clubs close too early. People drive too slow.”

      My question is..”ok, so when and where do you plan to relocate?” You’re an ADULT. Hit Monster, indeed, and craigslist find a job somewhere else and PACK IT UP! BYE! UGH

      Annnd Scene!

      OK. I hated hearing that shat when I was growing up. But it made more sense when you had no choice but to relocate with your fam. But once you are grown and on your own you can live whereever the hell you want.

      :rofl: @ carry yo soulful ass back where ya came from….
