Ebert on the mend

PRESS RELEASE: Chicago, IL -- Chicago Sun-Times and national television film critic Roger Ebert is in good condition and improving each day at Chicago’s Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was admitted for salivary cancer surgery last month. “Roger is improving each day and continues on his road to recovery,” says Roger’s wife, Chaz Ebert. “He's been through a lot and needs more time to recuperate. During his absence Roger will lend his thumbs to guest critics who will sit in the balcony with Richard Roeper to review movies. Roger will return to his seat in the balcony in the near future, and I ask that you continue to send healing thoughts his way.”

Roger Ebert added, “Don’t get too used to these guest co-hosts because I’ll be back in the balcony before you know it.” “Ebert & Roeper” originally taped six shows in advance of Ebert’s planned procedure, so the nationally syndicated program would continue during his recuperation. To allow Ebert recovery time, “Ebert & Roeper” is booking several interim guest co-hosts to join Richard Roeper for original episodes until Ebert returns. The highly prestigious invite to co-host “Ebert & Roeper” will be extended to prominent talent, executives and critics associated with the motion picture industry. "As much as I'm looking forward to opening the balcony to some bright and challenging minds, what I'm really anticipating is that day in the near future when I can welcome back the best and most popular film critic in the world," remarked co-host Richard Roeper. Film critics Roger Ebert and Richard Roeper host television’s most popular and respected movie review program, “Ebert & Roeper,” the top-rated first-run weekly half-hour in syndication. “Ebert & Roeper” presents entertaining and thoughtful discussion of film, designed to give viewers the information they need before they head out to their local multiplex. In addition to reviews of the newest releases, each week viewers see recaps of films currently in theaters, and those recently released on DVD/video. The program is distributed in national syndication by Buena Vista Television.
