Encouraging update on health of WIVB co-anchor Postles

Inquiring minds want to know: Is there any update on the condition of WIVB-TV (Channel 4) co-anchor Don Postles?

He has been out for more than three weeks with a medical issue that Channel 4 General Manager Dominic Mancuso hasn't been able to discuss because of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 that protects the confidentiality of a person's medical information.

Patients and family members can discuss medical information and Postles' wife, Anne, provided this update via text Thursday night: "Don is feeling much better and making progress every day. Our family is grateful for the support of our community."

According to multiple sources, Postles broke a couple of ribs weeks ago and that led to pneumonia and an extended period of hospitalization.
