For people wondering what's up with long-time Fox 5 anchor Amanda Davis since her arrest for an alleged DUI last November, she is finally going to speak in what Fox 5 is touting is a "special message" at 10 p.m. Thursday.

What she will be able to say specifically about her legal case, I can't imagine. This may be a sweet, gentle, non-specific message, perhaps an apology for what she did. You know I'll be reporting it live as it airs.

Russ Spencer is doing promos seen on 'American Idol" tonight.

Davis has declined all interview requests since November. And she is in legal limbo. Her case has not gone before a judge, The case in January moved from Atlanta Municipal Court to Fulton County State Court. The last I had checked, there has been no date set for trial. At the time, William Head, Davis' attorney, said the case would take longer in Fulton County. Indeed, that has been the case.

Davis, who has been with WAGA-TV since 1986 when it was a CBS affiliate, has been off the air since the November 11 wrong-way crash on Piedmont Ave. in Midtown. She was arrested for charges of reckless driving and driving under the influence. She was arrested for a DUI charge more than 20 years ago as well.
