Viewers of WTAE-TV (4) may have been surprised to see Wendy Bell back in the anchor chair Monday night. Bell gave birth to twin boys a little over a week ago. Just after the weather segment Bell announced that she was back until the twins were big enough to come home. The babies were born eight weeks early and both children weigh less than 3 pounds and aren’t able to be released yet. So, rather than waste the maternity leave while the babies are receiving the “best of care”, Bell has opted to save it for when they do come home.
(Almost un-necessary aside: We’re taking bets that someone will e-mail PBRTV or even Rob at the Post-Gazette during that time to ask if Wendy has left the station.)
