Linda Yu, Chicago Sun-Times program host, is recovering after surgery for a broken wrist.

The surgery went better than expected, and Yu can’t wait to start physical therapy on her wrist and get back to work. She is expected to be sidelined for the next few weeks.

Yu broke her wrist when she fell earlier this week at her home.

She hosts a weekly video series for the Sun-Times called “Food We Love,” which launched in April. Each episode, which can be found on the Sun-Times website, focuses on the family food traditions of Chicagoans. The articles and recipes also appear in the Friday edition of the newspaper.

Yu says her doctors expect her to fully recover.

“I can’t wait to be able to cook again and create more episodes of ‘Food We Love’,”  said Yu.

Her injury will not interrupt the weekly schedule of “Food We Love” because of videos already shot and in production, according to Jennifer Schulze, Sun-Times’ executive producer of new media products.
