WABC Anchor Bill Ritter Back at Work After Recovering From COVID-19

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

It’s been a rough couple of weeks for WABC New York anchor Bill Ritter.

As TVSpy first reported, Ritter told his Sunday morning show viewers in late March that he likely had a mild case of the novel coronavirus.

But as weeks passed, his symptoms became worse and instead of continuing to anchor from home, he focused on recovering from COVID-19.


“shoutout doesn’t begin 2properly describe my love/gratitude for the 3 guys who did their jobs and mine since March 25 as I was quarantined for a presumed case of #coronavirus. Thank you @DavidNovarro7 @mikemarzaABC7 and @joetorresABC7 for doing magnificent job anchoring @ABC7NY,” he wrote Sunday evening on Twitter.

However, Ritter is recovering, and said he’ll be returning to ABC7’s evening shows on Sunday.

He also made an appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan this morning.
