Jovita Moore, Atlanta News Anchor, Dead at 53 from Brain Cancer [Video]

Jovita Moore has died. The Atlanta news anchor died on Oct. 28, seven months after being diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer, her longtime station, WSB-TV, announced on Friday. She was 53.

"She passed last night, as she wanted, with her family by her side. She passed peacefully," her co-anchor at WSB-TV, Justin Farmer, said on-air. "… There is no making sense of a tragic death such as this, it's pain that's going to stay for a while."

A New York native, Moore earned her master's degree in broadcast journalism from Columbia University, and interned at The New York Times. She worked at stations in Arkansas and Memphis before starting at WSB-TV in 1998. She became a main anchor at the station in 2012.

Doctors discovered two masses on Moore's brain in April, after she became forgetful and disoriented. After a surgery, she was diagnosed with glioblastoma, the most common form of brain cancer.
