By Kevin Eck 

WUSA morning anchor Annie Yu is letting viewers know she is recovering after what she called a successful surgery.

Yu took some time off in the beginning of February for unspecified health reasons.

She posted to Facebook that she had surgery on February 3, and thanked everyone who “sent prayers, virtual hugs, acts of kindness, healing thoughts and everything in between, I feel them and I am so appreciative. ❤️ My heart is full.”


“Though the emotion of the last several weeks continues to overwhelm, I can’t help but feel that the worst is behind me,”said Yu. “I’m extremely thankful that I got the care and treatment I needed, when I did. My pathway to wellness is looking good. I am forever indebted to my amazing doctors, wonderful nurses and operating team who cared for me, and to be on the other side of this.”

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