WUSA9’s Lesli Foster is back in the anchor seat following lengthy recovery from two surgeries in two weeks in December 2021.
The WUSA9 news anchor had several fractures in her left ankle that required a bone graft and time to rest and recover. However, while Foster had planned to be on air a few more days before her December surgery, the D.C.-based station reported that the “universe had a different plan. Unfortunately, while trying to take a quick picture of her adorable pup, Boomer, Foster lost her balance and fell on her steps, fracturing her right wrist. The unexpected injury meant another surgery before her ankle surgery.”
Foster returned to D.C.-based WUSA9 in mid-April.
