WABC anchor Bill Ritter says he’s been cleared to return to work after recovering from a concussion he got after slipping on ice and hitting his head.

In a video posted to the New York ABC-owned station’s website (see below), Ritter told viewers where he’s been for the last two weeks..

Ritter says the doctor told him to take two weeks off and do nothing, “no watching television, no watching movies, no reading newspapers, no devices whatsoever, no texting, no Facebook, no Twitter, no email,” said Ritter. “Just relax and sleep.” Ritter says he slept up to 15 hours a day at one point, but feels much better and will be back Wednesday.

He posted about the fall on his Facebook page.
