Health Issues Take WUSA Morning Anchor Annie Yu Off the Air

By Kevin Eck 

WUSA morning anchor Annie Yu has announced that she will be off the air for awhile due to health issues.

Yu told viewers the news on the Washington, D.C. CBS affiliate yesterday and also wrote about it on her social media channels.

“After today, I’ll be away from anchoring the news for a while to deal with a health issue,” she wrote on Facebook. “I have to admit I’m feeling sad… because I didn’t ask for this. But I’m ready to handle it, and I know I will come out of this stronger than ever.”

We asked Yu about the announcement, but haven’t heard back.

“It’s been a challenging time for sure but I’m so GRATEFUL for being surrounded by people I love and trust… helping me get through it,” wrote Yu. “I’m also thankful to be in the hands of a great medical team. Everything will be okay.”

Yu joined Wake Up Washington and Get Up DC in October 2018.
