WCBS Anchor Diagnosed With Bell’s Palsy

WCBS anchor Maurice DuBois has been diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy.

He posted about it on his Facebook page

Dear friends and colleagues,
I’m taking some time off because I’ve been diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy, a temporary condition which has caused weakness on the right side of my face.
My doctors say the prognosis is good once it runs its course.
Thanks so much for your concern and well-wishes; I look forward to getting back to work as soon as possible.

A quick check of TVeyes showed DuBois hadn’t been on-air at the New York CBS-owned station since Dec. 21, when he filled in for Scott Pelley on the CBS Evening News.
