I am completely heartbroken to report Jovita Moore, our beloved Atlanta news anchor for WSB-TV, passed away on Thursday night after battling an aggressive form of brain cancer.

She was 53.

Jovita began experiencing unusual headaches earlier this year.

In April, she underwent surgery after doctors discovered two small masses on her brain during an MRI. 

Unfortunately, those tumors were diagnosed as a cancer called glioblastoma.

WSB-TV made the official announcement on Friday morning.

The news of Jovita’s passing has left her colleagues and the city of Atlanta gutted.

My sincerest condolences to the family of Jovita Moore and all who knew and loved her.

She will be missed beyond measure.
