CBS News President Sean McManus sent this note to the staff of CBS News this evening:
“You will all be very pleased to hear that I just left Kimberly and she is really doing well. She is talking well, hasn’t lost her sense of humor, and was disappointed that we had to meet in Landstuhl, Germany instead of over a drink in New York City. Kimberly obviously has a very tough and long road ahead of her, which she understands, but I’m confident that she will come through this and will again be one of the best reporters CBS News has. She very much understands and appreciates all the love and support from her colleagues at CBS News, and I know that this outpouring has been very instrumental in her recovery.
I also spent some time with her mother, father, brother and sister-in-law and they seem to be holding up remarkably well, and are also incredibly appreciative of the way the entire CBS News family has cared for them in every way.
We will continue to give you updates on Kimberly’s condition, but the news here is really very encouraging.”
