Former Atlanta Anchor Amanda Davis, who ended up embarrassing the hell out of WGCL says not to count her out.
Davis was busted for DUI (again) the weekend before she was supposed to appear on WGCL as a commentator. Davis was the first up in WGCL's highly promoted franchise, "Just a Minute."
After her arrest the station pulled her appearance from the newscast.
Davis was bounced from WAGA after her first DUI arrest. Months after that first arrest, Davis sat for an interview and basically said that said that she was doing well and blamed the viewers from abandoning her.
Then she was busted for DUI again.
Davis was recently spotted attending the memorial service for Reginald Eaves, who was remembered as “the first black person in several high positions in Atlanta” and as one of the “architects of New Atlanta”. It was well-published when Eaves, Atlanta’s first Public Safety Commissioner, was forced to resign in a test-cheating scandal. He later went on to be elected to the Fulton County Commission. Davis told CBS Radio Atlanta, in speaking about Eaves, “he’s an example of someone who could rebound from anything.”
Davis preferred not to talk about her latest arrest.
