WSB-TV anchor Fred Blankenship recovering from COVID-19
Despite the ordeal, Blankenship didn’t need hospitalization. “My doctor told me the fact that I got the vaccination and stayed in relatively good shape kept me out of the hospital,” he writes. “It’s been a big reminder that health is the true wealth. I want us all to be healthy my friends.
WSB says that Blankenship, who joined the station in 2007, is feeling much better now and will return to the air on Monday on Channel 2 Action News This Morning.
Before his COVID reveal on Facebook Wednesday afternoon, he had gone 19 days without any posts, an unusually long time for him. Each morning, he posts upbeat videos to his fans, often with old school beats behind him. His Facebook page has 152,000 followers. He did not post the COVID note on his Instagram page (43,000 followers) or Twitter page (12,900 followers).
