ATLANTA, Ga. -- Longtime WAGA news anchor Amanda Davis announced her retirement on Thursday night.

During her signoff, Davis noted her coverage of President Obama's 2008 inauguration, Coretta Scott King's funeral, the passing of Hosea Williams and her weekly "Wednesday's Child" segment as high-notes of her 26 year long career at Fox 5. 

Notable Atlantans like former WSB anchor Monica Pearson, V-103 disc jockey Ryan Cameron and Ambassador Andrew Young wished Davis goodwill on her retirement. 

Davis' retirement comes after a DUI arrest in November 2012. This was the only time she has appeared on the air since then.  She did not mention her pending court case.
